Let’s get organized for the new year
Some simple advice from professional “junk lugger,” Andrew
The Holidays are over!
The family loves their gifts, everyone had a wonderful time and
Uncle Morty didn’t have 1 too many FireNog’s this year.
And now the house is … packed full of JUNK.
Time for some sorting using the Rule of 3.
Create 3 piles:
Keep — Stuff you need or want
Remove — Stuff you don’t need, is broken, have outgrown
Revisit — Can’t decide right now? That’s ok. Make a 3rd pile for
Now that everything is sorted:
Put the Keep pile away
Sort the Remove pile into 3 piles
- Donate – To your favorite non-profit or a friend or neighbor
- Recycle – Specifics coming in Part 2
- Trash – Can’t donate or recycle? Into the trash!
Time to revisit pile 3.
Create the same 3 piles: Keep, Remove, Revisit.
Go back to it from time to time to your revisit pile to keep it
