We all have them…the closet that everyone is afraid to open because we know we can’t get it closed! Whether it is a master bedroom, linen, pantry or coat, it’s the same techniques to clear the clutter.
Use the 4 Boxes Method (Keep, Give, Move & Toss) and pull out everything, placing it in one of the boxes. Take this moment to sweep and wipe off surfaces while it is empty. Now, return the Keep items neatly. Give away your donations, Move things that do not belong to their correct home and Toss the trash.
Be hard on yourself. Ask those tough questions…Do you need it? Do you use it? Do you value it? Are you REALLY going to wear it? If so, when and where? Why are you holding onto it if it’s just taking up valuable space?
