I've read a few books on organizing, decluttering, etc. The best advice I ever heard was this....I call it the 3 step method.
- Put it away
- Throw it away
- Give it away
I used to think, "I might need it someday" or "Once I get rid of it I'll need it." Then I heard someone say that if you are keeping things that you 'might' need or use someday then you are not trusting that God will provide it when you do need it. That totally changed my outlook. I'm working on decluttering. If you have any other ideas I'd love to hear them.
