Hey there, Friends!
I have been on a rampage the last few weeks, simply due to the fact that I LOATHE CLUTTER! I believe that I have been pretty transparent in my feelings about all of the unnecessary STUFF with you all, so I’ve been busy running Operation Declutter around the White House. Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed by just…STUFF? Well, if this at all sounds like something you struggle with, I am here to help. Below are a few tips to help get you out of your rut.
1. Do not let paper pile up. Take a few minutes every other day or so to just weed through things like mail, kid’s school paperwork, etc. Once you’ve looked it over, decide whether to file it away, shred it, sign it, or trash it, then just do it!
2. Everything has a place. It just makes it that much easier when you know where to find things.
3. Have a designated location for donation items. Periodically, we will all go through and purge from our closets. Everyone in the house, all the way down to the 6 year old, knows where to put the items we are donating…..the bin in the garage.
I’ll be back later this week for a few more tidbits. Please don’t hesitate to reach out should you have any questions. Remember, don’t just talk about it….BE about it!
