Important Rule of Decluttering

(Have you ever taken a long time to get rid of the box or bag of giveaway items?)

Important rule of decluttering:  Get rid if it!

Have you ever decided to toss an item or give away a full box or bag just to have it still sitting around a week, month, even year later?

They say as soon as you fill a box or bag take it out to your car.   That way:

  • It is not in your house.
  • You are not as likely to reopen it and decide to keep it.
  • That when the thought hits you… it is already loaded and easier to donate.

So today I loaded my car with the bags from my closet decluttering job.  Talk myself into driving right to the donation truck and get this over with.  I am feeling pretty good about my decision.

I get to the truck and they tell me it is full.   UGH!   I need to come back another day.

At least it is in my van and ready for when I have that moment to take it back.  I will say that this is the first time this has happened to me.

If you get derailed in life – do not give up.     I will try again.
