Decluttering Flowchart: Finally Expel Clutter From Your Home

That umpteenth holiday sweater from Grandma … five years ago.

That watch from the one who got away … five years ago.

That pair of jeans you wore … five years ago.

That pair of shoes you rocked … five years ago.

That stack of magazines you read … five years ago.

That stack of ticket stubs from movies you saw … five years ago.

That stack of CDs you listened to … 17 years ago, before Napster hit the scene.

We all have “that.” The one thing, or multiple things, that we don’t use anymore.

The one thing, or multiple things, that have nothing better to do but sit on our shelves. Twiddle their thumbs. Hide underneath our beds. Scratch their heads. Sleep in our drawers. Creep on us from the back of our dark closets. Collect dust. And eat space.

Why?

Because “that” is buried out of sight, and thus, remains out of mind?

Because “that” meant a lot to us at one special time in our lives?

Maybe “that” did. Maybe “that” still does. Either way, “that” doesn’t always deserve to live in our homes, and eat our space, rent-free.

So how do you know whether to keep, store, sell, donate, recycle, or trash “that”?

You don’t. That’s why “that” is still in your home.

But maybe not for long. Our Decluttering Flowchart below will help you finally decide what to do with “that.” Because beautiful space is a terrible thing to waste.
