I read somewhere that a good way to declutter is to throw away (or put in a Goodwill pile) 10 things every day. If you’re cooking, pick out a few utensils you never use, etc. I’ve been doing this and it’s working quite well since it doesn’t activate my innter drill instuctor — “Ok People, when we’re done with this closet it’ll be completely bare except for ONE extra roll of toilet paper and a bottle of asprin so when you get a headache you don’t go whining to your Mommy, UNDERSTAND!? YOU don’t need those sponge curlers, what are you? A GIRL!?” This never works, I start to rebel against myself and keep four year old nailpolish because I bought it for a Halloween party I want to remember.
