Whether selling or staying in your home, spring is a good time to declutter and spring clean.
Tips on Decluttering:
- Get a box or bin and collect all the items that don't belong in the room you are working in.
- Start in one corner of the room and work your way around.
- If you are dealing with paper, start by collecting all the paper and put it in one pile. Take each paper and while you are holding it decide: Recycle? Shred? Pay? File? Act-on? Then make your separate piles.
- If you are dealing with a lot of clutter is the "3 bag a day" rule. Remove from your home 3 bags of stuff each day. The bags could be garbage, recycle, donation items or items to return. Just keep things moving out each day!
