Today I have some great information to share with you. Professional organizers know all the top secrets to get control of household clutter, and they don’t always like to share if you’re not a paying client, but today I have 10 tips to help you get control!
1. Professional organizers make five piles whenever they declutter a room. One pile is for the trash, one is to donate, another is for passing on to a friend, yet another for moving to another room in the house, and the last pile is for “marinating.” This means you aren’t sure what you want to do with it yet and need time to think about it. Box up this pile and date it for six months later. If in six months you haven’t opened it up, then you can safely donate or trash it.
