Decluttering Before the Holidays

November, is a peak month for pumpkins and cranberries, but not quite for moving. From May through September, half of the moving done in the United States occurs during the summer season. Fortunately enough, that means by now you’re all settled and perhaps ready to reorganize just in time for the arrival of family and friends. This may sound like a headache, but rest assured this can be a relaxing way to recharge and get you through the holidays. Besides, you know the attic is free terrain with all the decorations on display.

Many methods can be used to accomplish a de-cluttered home, but the one that resonates the most is called The Four-Box Method. Here, you can start small, choosing one location in your house to focus on, like a closet.

You will need four boxes, some masking tape, and a hand or two for packing and lifting. Each box represents a category: trash, give-away, keep, or relocate. Every item you encounter gets placed into question of value and need. Once you decide, you are on your way to an organized and more spacious home.

Not long after the items have been separated, you will already feel a sigh of relief when you toss out the trash. Hold off, on the give-away box because you may have more options on getting rid of those items.  There are several charities that would love to partake in items you no longer want. Providing books, furniture, shoes, or clothing can help under privileged families, disaster victims and essentially helps the environment. You can add money to your pockets if you decide to donate, just don’t forget to ask for a tax receipt. Selling some of your furniture and clothing to resell shops or online could definitely add to your holiday spending fund!
