DECLUTTER!

By
Real Estate Agent with Stewart Estates

Decide
- the first step is to make the important decision of actually doing it. Pick a day that you're going to be home. Depending on the state of the room, you can decide how long you'll take. Of course, you may think it's very easy. But you have to see it through the whole process. Only then will you have the mental and physical satisfaction of having done the task you set out to.


Separate
- get big boxes and label them 'clothes', 'books', 'shoes', 'papers', 'miscellaneous', and 'trash'. Judge the number and size of the boxes that you'll need according to the stuff in your room. Then begin with the tedious task of separating everything in your room. Sift through every little thing, and put it in the appropriate boxes. What you don't need, throw away directly into the 'trash' box! This is the perfect way to put an end to a hoarding habit that you may have.

Check the Boxes
- once you have all the stuff in your room boxed up, you need to do a double check. Check each box, for the things that you need and things you don't. Start with the clothes. Fold or hang all the clothes that you'll wear in the closet. Check for clothes that are torn, frayed, faded, or out of style etc. Throw the torn ones away, or cut pieces and design your own patchwork quilt later. Get rid of the books that you're not going to need or read. Give them away to someone who will read them. File all the papers that lie scattered around, in separate files according to what they are for.

Arrange and Rearrange
- once you're done with all the boxes, it's time to begin with the resetting of your room. Give it a fresh new look, by rearranging the furniture a bit. Do any small thing to make your room look a little different than it was before! Put all your stuff in the appropriate places. You can also learn how to organize a closet in a different way, and arrange everything more neatly. You'll be surprised how much more space you'll have in your closet and in your room!

Give Away and Fix
- all the stuff that you've decided to throw away, should be thrown away ASAP. Get a friend to help you, so that she or he won't have any emotional attachment to the stuff, and won't hesitate to throw it away instantly. Other things that you've marked for donation need to be taken to the charity place at once. NOT made to sit in a box, in the corner of the room, or behind a door.

Hey Jason,

The one time everyone does declutter is when they are moving.  Very very few ever imagine that they have more stuff than they think they have.  Best of success to you this year!
