Use a great tip I just discovered: Pick three nights a week to try on 5 items in your closet, then go to your dressers and do same thing. At this rate, average American woman should be able to go through all her clothes in about 3 years, 9 months and 14 days. No need to worry, it’ll be a different season then!
Kids’ Toys 1.You could try to “limit” number of toys they play with each month and cycle them to and from garage so your little ones get variety. 2.That takes too much effort. I just threatened my boys if they left toys out on their floor at bedtime, they would be in dumpster next day (the toys, silly!). Do this twice, and you’ll have this hot spot under control.
I hope these points have given you some new ways to look at problem of clutter and refreshing methods to deal with them. Given fun you’ll have with that dumpster, you might want to consider renting a second one for hubby’s stuff.
I’ll tell you what. If you really do rent a dumpster (okay, it can be smaller version) I’ll have a reward for your diligence. Ladies – Email me that you filled your dumpster to very tippy top and something funny that happened during process. I’ll send you a coupon for a discount on a Fragrance Lamp that will fill your home with lovely aromas. Gentlemen – Email me same (that is, that you actually rented thing and filled it, and an amusing related story) and I will send you a Gift Certificate for your wife. Such a deal!
