    This is a great idea! I need to do this to get my house clean and manageable.

    I really need to start doing this decluttering idea. My house is beginning to look real junkie! I'll begin today!

    Strangely enough i have been doing this lately. I don't do one item, I do several at a time. Recently went through all the clutter in the bathroom and gave away all the things that I just don't use anymore.Old lipsticks, bath products, talcs, little soaps that we collected on our travels, makeup, eyeshadows etc to my young nieces who just adored them. Next will be the jewelery box.....

    I remember a saying from Peter Walsh regarding mail: OHIO~ Only Handle It Once. I try to do that, but definitely easier said than done. emoticon

    This one sparked me so much, I made it my goal last week and have enjoyed great success with it. It's my goal again this week. Join us on the message boards at

    That works great except for junk mail..... it just keeps on coming! I usually sort through it by the recycling bin and most of it goes there immediately.
