31 Days of Organizing Tips: Day 3 (De-cluttering)

Welcome to Day Three of the 31 Days of Organizing Tips series!  

Now that you've created a list of organizing projects, picked one or two to get started on, and planned out your project, it's time to dive in and start organizing!

The first step in organizing is to de-clutter.  We live in a culture that is crazy about "stuff" and we accumulate a lot of it!  Before organizing what you have (and definitely before buying any storage containers!), take some time to assess what you really need and use.  Chances are you have a lot that you didn't know you had or rarely use, and maybe even some things you don't like that much.  The popularity of shows on hoarding and de-cluttering show how much of an issue this is.

This post has been moved to my business website's blog: https://fromoverwhelmedtoorganized.com/31-days-of-organizing-tips-day-3-de-cluttering/. Please check it out there. 

Happy organizing!
