Spring Cleaning, Ugh – March 22.2011

It is National Clutter Awareness Week — March 23-28. Time to clear your clutter!

If you just sighed, I am right there with you. I have very good intentions! I just haven’t been able to get myself motivated. I even know where all the stuff is that I need to go through and decide on what I’ keeping and what I am ready to get rid of! It is safe to say that I am a procrastinator!

I came across this article today that I feel will be of some help to me, and I hope it might give you some ideas too! Here are some of the basic highlights, and good luck! I will let you know how I do too!

  1. Make A Date With Your Clutter — Be serious about getting rid of clutter. Set a day to start. Be reasonable with yourself about just how much you can accomplish. Give yourself a set amount of time to accomplish it.
  2. Start Small — A big room might be too overwhelming so start with something small, like a drawer. Take it easy and do one thing, finish it, and then do another small thing.
  3. Organize Your Stuff — Divide the big project of clearing clutter into smaller, more manageable clutter projects. Make a to do list and check items (2) things to sell for hurricane relief (3) gifts you’ll give to others (4) garbage.
  4. Transforming Your Clutter Into Cash — There are a couple of ways to use your clutter for hurricane relief. You can sell your items on eBay and donate the proceeds to the American Red Cross or other relief groups. eBay has a special Giving Works program for charity listings where people can buy items that support nonprofit organizations. The items you auction will be grouped with other items that are specifically being auctioned to help charities. And shoppers can search for items that are being auctioned to help charities. But if you are unable to auction items online you can help out the old fashioned way by having a yard sale and donating the proceeds to the Red Cross or other relief organizations. You can also combine your items with friends and family and have a neighborhood, civic association or church sale.
