Time to Declutter Again





This may seem like a funny time to be decluttering but my house is beginning to feel over stuffed again and with the holidays coming I want to clear out a few thing.

 I saw this post  http://orgjunkie.com/2012/10/how-to-make-weekly-household-purges-happen.html that talks about decluttering and she has a donation box which she clears out once a week.

 So I put a big plastic box in my closet marked donations. I already had a bag of stuff that has been sitting in my closet for a long long time. I put it into the box and on my errand day I plan to take it to the Goodwill. Every week I hope to put some things in that box and then empty it on my errand day. For me having a specific day to take the things I think will help me to accomplish this.

I have a hard time letting go of stuff and it seems overwhelming right now, but I'm hoping a baby step approach will get me going. I'm telling myself I have to get rid of something every week. I think a good place to start is the garage. I'm adding this to my weekly chore list.

Edit I'm adding this link that just came up on keep your home clutter free.
