Declutter Your Home With This Simple Rule

Donating items to declutter a home

By adopting some simple rules you can get and keep your home organized. 

Home organizing is an ongoing process.  It literally never ends.  Don't let that intimidate you. If you are wanting to stay organized there is one golden rule.  One that stands out from the rest.  One hard and fast rule.  One non negotiable rule. 

The 1 in/1 out rule. ​​​​​​​​

It is quite simple and anyone can adopt and implement this rule in their lives today.  It goes like this, if you bring something new into your home, something has to leave. It's as simple as that.​​​​​​​​  It's not rocket science.
​​​​​​​​Bought a new pair of pants? Donate a pair you no longer wear.  Bought some new steak knives?  Donate the old set.  Found a new amazing shade of eye shadow? Trash an old color that doesn’t make you feel your best. ​​​ See how simple that is?  
The more you do it the easier it gets.
​​​​​​​​This rule also helps to keep purchases to needs & loves vs. wants & likes.  If you know you will have to get rid of something if you buy the item, you are more likely to think twice before swiping that card.  So you get to save money and stay organized.  It's a win win!
Happy organizing!
