Space is a premium in our home so take the time to de-clutter a room or two. Here some steps to help with that process;
Sort into four categories. Use four boxes, sacks or plastic bags. Label them “toss,” “give away,” “relocate” (in other rooms) and “stay.” Remove one item at a time, deciding in which of the four categories it belongs. Clean every shelf and closet one at a time till you see the bottom. Use the last 15 minutes to clean up. Put “toss” items in the trash and “give away” items in the car).
Take “relocate” items to designated rooms and push “stay” items back into the closet and then Collect articles from other areas that belong in the newly cleaned closet. NOW Reorganize the space, using storage principles: Keep frequently used items low and accessible. Store seldom used items on higher shelves
