  • I also believe that we create clutter and have decided that, if I purchase something, I have to give something away to make "room" for the new item. You'd be surprised if you pay it forward, they will eventually come back to you without it costing you a thing! We can do this with the clothes we no longer need after we lose the weight! emoticon - by SUNSET09
  • since I joined the flylady group here on spark I am getting better at this - by GOALIEGRANDMA3
  • Decluttering can be so overwhelming. But deciding on only one item a day is very do-able!

  • Very good idea, I have lots of things that I need to go thru & do away with, but never seem to get around to doing it. emoticon - by VRACHAL
  • Very helpful suggestion! emoticon - by MERRYJO1
  • I love this idea. I have been looking for creative streaks. Thanks a million. - by FIT4HZGLORY
  • I also have a 2 year rule. If I haven't worn that outfit in 2 seasons, it goes away. I sometimes will hang onto something if I like the cloth, and refashion an item based on the cloth. - by MIUMIU69
  • When we get gifts, as a family, we ask our kids and ourselves to get rid of the same number as gifts we receive. If my kid gets three gifts, they get rid of three things, either through regifting, donation, or giving to a friend who would like the item. No increase in stuff then. - by MIUMIU69
  • This is a great idea. Thank you for sharing. emoticon - by JACKILANE

  • I ALWAYS feel SO much better when I clear out more of the clutter and either haul it off to the junkyard or give it away through!
