Organizing Tip #12

• 02 June 2008

Per Danyelle's request, I'm keeping these organizing tips coming along... :)

Take just a few minutes to walk through your home with a garbage bag, gathering every useless item you can.


Last night I actually did this myself (most of the tips I offer up are usually ones I need help with) and found it very therapeutic. Seriously. I took a kitchen trash bag to my bathroom and surprisingly, filled it up. I couldn't believe how much junk my bathroom harbored--so many things I wasn't using. It felt so good to clean out the closet and drawers.

I can't wait to do the same to the rest of the house. Less is more!
