Ahhhhh….I’ve fallen behind with the daily tips. How is it the 18th already?
Tip #15 – The 30 Day Method
I heard about this on Oprah once, from her organizing guru Peter Walsh. I’m not really sure of the name, so I am calling it the 30 Day Method.
How it works is – if you are having a hard time getting rid of things for fear of not having them when you need them – try this method. Place all of the items in question (e.g. kitchen utensils, lotions, jewelry, etc.) and place it in a box. As you need something, pull it out of the box and use it. Then put it back in the normal place (e.g. kitchen drawer for utensils). At the end of the 30 days, whatever is left in the box, ask yourself – do you really need these things? If not – out they go!

I’m inspiring myself with these decluttering tips this month. Follow me at my Facebook page where I’ve shared my closet full of reverse hangers and see my clean junk drawer. I’ll post updates on my kitchen utensils there too.
