Four Easy Steps to Getting Your Clean On
Start small – Don’t attempt to clear an entire house in one day. This can quickly squash your motivation and cause you to procrastinate. Do it in pieces. Clear out one room at a time starting with an easier one first so that you can stay motivated to move on to the next one. When you get to a bigger more difficult room, divide the area into three or four sections and sort one section at a time.
Create three categories: “Just Junk”, “Donations/Recycling”, and “To Keep”. You can simply use piles or we recommend using plastic bins for the smaller things, to separate your items into the 3 different categories. Try not to have a “miscellaneous” pile. Make a decision and stick to it.
Take a survey of whatever the item is. Ask yourself, “Have I used this lately? Will I use it soon? Can someone else use it? Will I (or somebody else) regret throwing/giving it away?”
