Before you pack away the storage boxes, sort through the clutter!

Storing items away when they’re not in use seems like a wise thing to do, but how much of what you are storing is junk you can either donate or throw away? Reconsider those stored items using some simple, easy-to-follow steps:

1. Gather your junk from each room or furniture piece into one starting pile.

2. Immediately pick out all of the trash – old receipts, paper, packaging leftovers, old boxes, anything you don’t need.

3. Find the items that already have a home…are there CDs that can go into a CD case, or maybe some pencils to put in your office desk or kids’ room?

4. Group similar items together. If you have duplicates, or haven’t used items in over a year, consider donating them, selling them in a garage sale, or simply tossing them. 

5. Your remaining items should be items you plan to use within the next year – pack them up in boxes that are clearly labeled to make spotting your stuff easy when you need to snag a box.
