DECLUTTER

Choose one area at a time to work on

Take it in small chunks

For each item, ask: 

  • Do I love it?
  • Do I use it?

Use the four box method:

 

  • "Throw Away"-things that are worn out or broken
  • "Give Away/Sell"-things that don't fit, don't look right, that you haven't used in the past year
  • "Put Away"-things that belong elsewhere
  • "Storage"-things you want to keep
  • Printable signs for decluttering with the four box method (pdf)

Follow-up-take things to the location you decided on
