Organizational – Activity: Declutter
This week, begin to simplify your life by decluttering stuff!
- Choose one area at a time to work on
- Start with the area that bothers you the most
- Take it in small chunks
For each item, ask:
- Do I love it?
- Do I use it?
- Use the four box method:
“Throw Away”-things that are worn out or broken
“Give Away/Sell”-things that don’t fit, don’t look right, that you haven’t used in the past year
“Put Away”-things that belong elsewhere
“Storage”-things you want to keep
Printable signs for decluttering with the four box method (pdf)
- Follow-up-take things to the location you decided on
SMART GOAL STATEMENT: I will [do what] reduce clutter [by doing what] going through my clothes [when] every evening [for how long] 30 minutes [measured by] eliminating all clothes I don’t use and love [by when] and taking one bag each Saturday to Goodwill.
