Series PART II:
Here are tips on how to clear the clutter:
Keep in mind: This is a new and lighter beginning for you and your family. You are letting go of items that were in your past, items you have no use for now, in the present. Why not pass it on to others that would need it? They possibly are going through a similar situation and this item may be useful for them. Everyone can let go of things, even you. You are letting go of things that will help you be who you want to be.
Now let’s get started.
Clear out one entire wall in the room. Hang signs on the wall separated evenly from the left side of the wall to the right side. These signs should be labeled: Sell, Donate, Giveaway, Recycle, Shred(get a box for shred items), and anything else you feel you need.
Remember: start with the room that is least used. Then, start going through the items by moving them from one side of the room and place them in the right ‘to do’ group. Go through the entire room and place them into these categories. If you are seeing another category appear, like give to nephew, or give to _____, add a sign for them.
Keep going until the entire room is completely organized. Repeat this task for each room. If you have space, you can move the items to this room or create a whole new sign system in another room.
