Declutter with a 21 Item Toss

Mar 25, 2015 | Blog, Cleaning Tips, Decluttering Tips

It is that time of year again! The one and only time of year I actually get excited about cleaning. I tackle the grossest, grimiest areas of my home, once, and only once year.  Windows, behind the fridge and stove and the dreaded dog poo mine field in my back yard (ok…so I’m not excited about that part).  But before I begin the magical week of…

I always start with a big giant de-cluttter of my home.  Clutter is an issue in everyones home and it can be difficult to make those tough decisions to let things go.

A painless way to make de-cluttering easy and effective is to pick a random number and get rid of those many items.  I always pick 21.

It is just enough to make a difference, but not too many that I become overwhelmed.

So everyday, for an entire week, I do a 21 Item Toss. I run around my home as fast as I can and find 21 things to donate or put in the trash.  I usually grab a shirt here or a pair of shoes there and I can always find magazines or papers that are not needed. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is!

So if you are feeling like your house is out of control and you don’t know where to start, trust me, a 21 Item toss is exactly the place you need to begin!

I used to think my “stuff” made me happy, but the truth is, too much stuff had the opposite effect. When my home was messy and disorganized I always felt…well, defeated.  

Purging pulled be and my home from a slump and I know it will help you too!
