This is it, a brand new year, a fresh start. This can also be the year that you finally cut through the clutter. Maybe it’s an unruly attic, a garage that holds everything except the car, or a closet so full the door won’t even close.
Your first step is to downsize. Chances are you have multiple items, such as jeans and T-shirts. They’re good examples, you just don’t need two dozen of these things.
Next, it’s time to divide and conquer. Sort items into these four categories: keep, donate, recycle, and dispose.
After sorting, use clear, plastic containers to store all the items in the keep pile; and don’t forget to label each box clearly.
Now you can neatly stack your labeled boxes and check off your first resolution of the New Year as complete!
