Conquering Clutter: Throw It All Away!

In the last two clutter posts, I suggested that you plan your drudge work and limit the time you allocate for it so you never get overwhelmed as you do it and always know you have a plan for getting back to it. I also suggested choosing one room at a time.

Throw Away as Much as You Can

In that room you are tackling, place a garbage bag or two and some boxes for separating out what to keep and what to store as you clear away the clutter.

Throw away as much as you are willing to let go of and put a date on what you decide to store. That date should be no more than six months later and whatever is in that box should be thrown away if it does not get used in that time.


This weekend, take a look around in one of your rooms and throw away as much as you can stand to let go of, and for the stuff you insist on keeping, but know you should throw out, put it in a box. After a week or more of not really seeing it, it may loosen its hold on you.

Have a wonderful autumn day!
