Follow the One In, One Out Rule
If your home is busting at the seams from too much stuff, read on because this tip will help simplify your life immensely. Let’s face it we only have so much space, right? For every new item you bring into your home, one old item needs to leave your home.
• A new pair of shoes in, donate an old pair
• Purchase a new book, pass an old book onto a friend
• Buy a new set of dishes, donate the old set
• New magazine comes in, old magazine gets recycled
You get the idea. This rule is crucial to help you maintain the simpler, clutter-free life you want. When something new comes into your home, something old needs to go out – simple. If you really want to get ahead of the game, go crazy and remove two items for every new item brought in! Seriously, you will see light at the end of the tunnel much sooner.
Remember those that are less fortunate than you. They would be thrilled to receive your donations and put them to good use instead of collecting dust in your home.
