Four Quick Ways to Fight Clutter

Clutter escalates fast. A magazine here, a stack of mail there, and then suddenly there are mountains of stuff everywhere! Give your clutter problems a swift kick in the rear using these tactics:
Box It Up. It doesn’t take a miracle to make your clutter-free dream a reality. It just takes a designated box. Every time you pick up something that’s unused or unwanted around the house, put it in the box.
Follow the “Five” Rule. This is one of those little habits that makes a big difference! Every night before your family goes to sleep, have everyone pick up five wayward items and put them back where they belong.
Remove Temptations. This is a bold move. If there’s a piece of furniture in your house that is constantly covered with clutter – like a side or entryway table – get rid of it!
Make a Date. Do you have more than one clutter zone in your home? If so, tackling the problem can feel like a mammoth undertaking. Take control by breaking your clutter into bite-size pieces.

    One way to get rid of clutter is to sell it or swap it. Like they say one man's junk is another mans treasure. I have a lot of so called "treasures" that I would like to sell but don't have the time. I donated a lot but could use the extra cash right now .Selling, donating and swapping are good ways to get rid of clutter and maybe helping someone find what they can use in the process.
