4 Purging Tips You Can Use

There’s a saying, “The more things you own, the more they own you.”  This is so true!  Don’t be a prisoner to things.  Learn to let go and achieve more freedom and space.  Here are a few things to remember:

  • If you’re not using it, you don’t know what to do with it, or if you don’t love it, it’s clutter.  Give the item away to someone who will use it or sell/donate it.
  • How many things have you saved or put aside thinking that you’ll get it fixed, altered or cleaned?  Make a note on your calendar or to-do list to take action – or get rid of it.
  • Everyone has items that hold sentimental value – old jewelry, holiday trinkets, vacation souvenirs, even hand-me-down clothes that are the wrong size or falling apart.  If the special item is taking up precious space, try keeping a memory of it by taking a photograph and putting it in a scrap book.
  • Set a good example for your children.  Teach them that a clean and organized bedroom and playroom is important in keeping them organized in school and work.
