4 tips for clearing house clutter

Posted by: Angie Hicks on


Are you ready to get organized? Here are some tips to consider before messing with the mess:

 

  • Make sure to start with small goals and create a simple organization system or method that's easy to maintain. Remember, the method that works for a friend might not work for you.
  • Like any other appointment, schedule a date and time to get started. Focus on one area at a time. Pick a spot and work your way around the room as time allows.
  • Not everything has to end up in a landfill. There are charitable organizations and recycling centers that will take your extra stuff. Research your local options and divide your contents accordingly.
  • Protect the progress you make. Be diligent about putting everything in its place when you're done using it. Don't let the cleared space accumulate stuff.
