Since I have been packing up all of our stuff this week, I have been thinking about how much junk we have and how much stuff we actually use. Overall, I would say that Jared and I tend to have fewer items in our home than most.
Here is how I eliminate all that stuff in a house:
- When packing your things to move or doing spring cleaning, ask yourself "Have I used this in the past 6 months? Did I even remember I had this? Is this worth saving for sentimental reasons? If you answer NO to these questions either toss the item, donate it, or sell it at a garage sale.
- Move every year!
For those interested in how long it has taken me to pack. I have worked two days on the house and I only anticipate it taking one more day. And that is just picking away at it when Makenna is napping. The garage.....that is a completely separate undertaking.
