I'm guessing that you have clutter - we all do. So, what do you with it and how do you banish it forever? Here's a few small steps to start with.
1. Get rid of it. This means, if you don't use it (or haven't for the last year), get rid of it. One of the best ways is through donation - i.e., charity or free cycler groups. If it's trash or broken or just no good or no longer in style or just OLD (like an avocado painted oven) - throw it out! Well, maybe you could spray paint the oven a new color!
2. One in, one out. Yep, that means if you buy something (like a new shirt), you need to give away the same item. I have yet to get my husband to keep up with this, but I'm working on him. If you have a tiny closet, I'm sorry - but it can only fit so much no matter how organized you are, you can't change the size of it!
3. If you don't need it, don't buy it or take it! Even if it's cheap and you really don't need it (or free from a friend)...walk away! Many times I find myself drawn to buying something because it's a really good deal or it's on sale, or maybe "so and so" could use it. Don't do it. This is all about self control and just walking away from a good deal - even if it's FREE! If you don't have the room or the need, say "no thanks" and let it go. Chance are, you have a lot of that clutter from good deals and freebies laying around your house useless.
4. "Someday I might need this." This is just like the last one. If you don't need it now, don't do it. When the time comes and you need it, let people know you need it, ask for it on your freecycler group. Chances are, you'll get it when you really need it - IF you really do wind up needing it later on.
