It isn’t easy to let go of the things that you bought or gifted to you for sentimental reasons. But if you really wanted a clutter free environment at home, you have to start somewhere. Why not begin from your closet which is stuffed with clothes that you no longer need. Sort out the clothes according to their purpose. If you have a newly purchased Joe Rocket Phoenix 5 Jacket, of course, you can keep it and take it out on winter. Arrange your favorite clothes or the ones you frequently use. Dump the ones that you will no longer wear or serve their purpose, including the ones that are beyond repair. Lastly, donate the clothes to some organizations, someone will be happy to receive them.
Do you know which part of house organization really gets on my nerves? Decluttering. It’s picking up those things that shouldn’t be there. Caps, jackets, for example, are supposed to be hanging in a rack for easy access. In our case, the kids would hang the caps and jackets on the ear part of the chairs. They are used to that practice for a long time. Now, I’m thinking of looking for coat rack at CoatRacks.com or their cheaper alternative to finally put an end to some if not all my decluttering misery.
