Happy New Year 2011

It's the new year and time to clean out the old and bring in the new. It can mean something as simple as cleaning your closet or something a little bigger like reorganizing a room. Either one can be a daunting task unless you do a little at a time.

When beginning to clean, make a plan and do one section at a time. For instance, with your closet, you could start by just clearing the top shelf. Put things into piles 1. give away 2. keep 3. maybe and then put back neatly what you definitely want to keep. Next go to the bottom and do the same. The bigger task usually being what's hanging. Things that are in the 'maybe' pile can be put in a bag and stored. If you go hunting for something in that bag, it may end up in the 'keep' pile but if you don't open that bag for 30 days, it should go to Goodwill, Purple Heart, etc.

My bet is once you start with your closet, you'll soon move on to other areas of your home. It's a good feeling and in the process you help others by donating your still very usable items.
