2018 is the year to clear the clutter! Make sense of the chaos that has taken over your home (or office) three small steps at a time.
1. The First Pile: Garbage
This can consist of broken items, empty boxes, torn clothes, etc. It’s amazing how much you can end up throwing away. If you want, you can even make a game of it with other family members — the person who throws away the most gets dinner, on the loser.
2. The Second Pile: Give Away
If you have a pile of a bunch of “this could come in handy someday” items, get rid of them. Let’s face it, they are just cluttering your home, and can be much more useful to someone else. Pass it along to a family member, friend, or shelter.
3. The Third Pile: Keep
This is going to be the hardest pile to go through. When deciding to keep or get rid of an item, ask yourself this:
- Has it been used/worn in the last 12 months?
- Are there any plans to use it in the next 30 days?
- Would you buy it again?
Once you’ve finished clearing your clutter, you’ll notice a much more relaxing and stress-free feeling in your home. You can also use these tips, and more, for your office! For the freshest carpets, call the textile experts at Triple S!
