The hardest part of organizing your home is deciding what to get rid of and what to keep. Here are some handy tips on weeding out the clutter in your house.
3. You don’t need everything: Cleaning out clutter is about being honest with yourself and truly owning up to what you have and what you need. Sure, you make like all five of your salt and pepper shaker sets, but do you really need FIVE of them? The answer is no. So get rid of them. Also, many people keep things for sentimental value, but don’t let the fear of dishonoring grandma make you keep boxes of junk. The best homage to the ones you love who have generously passed you on their junk is keeping a few things that you will use and getting rid of the rest. Do you entertain a lot? Then keep grandma’s china, but ditch the hat collection? Remember, grandma would probably rather have you be happy and clean than miserable in a pile of junk.
