Let me be honest. I do not like clutter! It jumbles my head and I can't think straight. I definitely can't work because all I see is stuff everywhere. I tell my kids, it hurts my brain! Lol. Obviously I am exaggerating, however, there is a little bit of truth to that. I work better in a clean and organized environment. Most importantly, it makes me feel good. I probably "spring clean" 2-4 times a year. Partly, because I have growing kids but also because I have this feeling that if there is something that we aren't using that someone else may need, why not bless them with it. So with that being said, here is how I do inventory:
I ask myself, have I used it in the last year? (If no, donate.)
Is it seasonal? (If yes, you may have a reason for keeping it.)
Can you still fit it? (If no, it's okay to let it go.)
Is it functional? (Does it still work or does it need to be fixed?)
Have you outgrown it? (Fashion wise, size wise, or has it already been replaced.)
P.S. Your answer can only be YES or NO. No excuses, if, ands, or buts. If your answer is no, let it go!!! (In my Frozen voice!). I hope this helps! Feel free to email me if you have any questions!
