Fall Housecleaning

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Every year about this time, when the weather becomes cooler, I vow to make this the season I get rid of the clutter in my house. This clutter includes clothes, books, mementos, and household appliances. However, I never fully realize the accomplishment of this goal, because I'm a saver. The things I find hard to discard are the "it could be useful," "someone gave it to me," and especially "I may read this book again one day." While I have no problem getting rid of obvious trash, like outdated magazines or newspapers or broken items--I seem to get stuck at the same place every year. Maybe this year will be different???

    my rule of thumb is--if u haven't used it in a year--out it goes...it's nice to donate coats & sweaters this time of year--so many are cold & without

    I find that asking someone to come help you out who you know is the type to not hold on to clutter is a huge help!! I did this with a friend and helped her get rid of entire BAGS of clothes one time! Good luck though, I've been wanting to do the same fall cleaning myself!
