Welcome to Week 2 of the “Destress Yourself” series. Check out all the previous posts in the “Destress Yourself” series if you missed any!
When it comes to cleaning out closets, drawers, attics and garages we tend to look at these things as huge projects. But many organizers will tell you that small steps can be just as effective.
So my challenge for myself and you this week is to get one bag of things together to either throw away or donate for each person in your house. 5 people = 5 bags. This doesn’t mean clean out your entire attic. Maybe this is just taking a black trash bag, going to your closet and pulling 10 things off of hangars you haven’t worn in a year. Or donating DVDs you haven’t watched in years. Perhaps you have old newspapers, magazines or documents you need to recycle or destroy.
Whatever it is there is a good chance the extra clutter in your house is not exactly making you feel relaxed. So take the extra 10 minutes to find these few bags of things to donate or throw away. Clear out your space so you can focus on positive things!
