It’s Still Winter! Clean out those Closets!

It’s Still Winter! Clean out those Closets!

I love the winter months. I’m not a fan of skiing, skating, or sledding (When I was a child I broke my femur sledding.) Cold weather is the time I get all my indoor projects done before Spring and Summer arrive and I won’t want to be inside!

Winter is an especially good time to clean out those closets that overflow and then it becomes hard to find what we really need. Life is too short to be digging for what we want and pushing past things we don’t use to get what we need! Taking the time to identify what we no longer use and donating our C.R.A.P. (Clutter that Robs Anyone of Pleasure) to someone who could use it is well worth the effort. Let’s break it down:




The goal is to eliminate the unnecessary and maximize the space you have to simplify your life. After you’ve cleaned out your space(s), be stingy and selective about what you bring into the space and try the one in and one out rule. You will be so proud of yourself when you’re done! Happy uncluttering!
