Is there a category you suspect you have an overabundance of? If so, here’s what to do:
- Pull all these similar items together so you can see exactly what you have.
- Consider how many you actually use and/or need.
- Let go of the excess.
Sorting ahead of time allows you to make informed decisions which, hopefully, makes this process easier.
Over the years I’ve shared photos in my newsletter and on my Altogether Organized Facebook page of some of my client’s “collections” to show just how much space is being taken up. While you may not have an abundance of the specific things in these pictures, consider if there are items you don’t use that are taking up just as much (or more) space in your home or office.
Remember, letting go of the excess will open up space and opportunities to keep the things you value and use in the places you want them to be, where you can see exactly what you have and easily access it.
I’d love to hear how you use the space you create!
