Grab a box. Do a walk through of the house with the box and fill it with 3 types of items: Junk, Donations, and Misplaced items.
JUNK: Toss out the items today. No going back, no “dumpster diving” later on to retrieve items.
DONATIONS: Most places will pick up items for free if you call around, so why not give to someone in need?
MISPLACED: That stray sock, the kids toys in the kitchen, or the basketball in the laundry hamper… They all have a home, why not have the spouse and kids help you relocate all the misplaced items back to their rightful places within the house? You CAN beat the clutter!
