Hey dear friend,
I know your heart's desire to live in a clean, clutter-free home, each item in its place and your schedule free of "declutter & organize" appointments.
Step 1 Let's not put this on the calendar and then avoid it. DO IT NOW or do it before your coffee on Saturday.
Step 2 Pick 1 room that is NOT your most stressful cluttered room
Step 3 Grab a garbage bag and start on 1 wall and then make your way around the room, covering ground once.
These items DO NOT cause you angst or any decision-making as of yet.
You are looking for your ABSOLUTES:
stuff that you easily don't want
stuff you can't donate
(think stuff you shove in a junk drawer, just because.....)
Recycle what you can but for all purposes that is considered garbage in this step
Please DO NOT empty out the drawers and cupboards
you are NOT on an organizing trip,
you have coffee ☕ brewing and other things to get to in a few moments.
You do not want to see all this stuff pulled out and get overwhelmed
because now it's a heartstring-filled minefield of an organizing project!
Let me pause here and talk truth about a common dilemma -
"I don't want to add to our landfills, this is still useful but it's not worth donating...."
Bottom line: Having this stuff does not align with your goals of having a clutter-free house, so deep breath -- chuck away. You can't change what you purchased and kept in the past but you can make different choices going forward.
Ok, now go enjoy that coffee!
Like "treasure" hunts, join the 777 Clutter Hunt where you easily find and relieve yourself of 49 items each month - 588 items a year!
