Four years ago I started throwing away or placing at least 1 item in a consignment/donation/yard sale box EVERY SINGLE DAY! By doing this it allows me to keep our house organized and clutter free. I have a monthly scheduled pick up with the Vietnam Veterans or the Lupus Foundation which is great because it "forces" me to be sure that I have items for them monthly. Not only is this great because it keeps our home clutter free it is also a tax deduction at year end!
Decluttering Your Home
I wanted to share with you some Tips For De-cluttering Your Home. Several years ago I started a daily routine of "removing" something from my house every single day! Some of you may think that is extreme however if you never remove items from your home then eventually you would end up with too much clutter. They say for every item that comes into your home one should leave if you are keeping things organized so it is a motto I live by. If you are not organized then often times you end up buying a duplicate item because you are unable to locate the item when you need it.
