How to declutter? One story at a time. It took me 2 ½ weeks but I did it! I had two boxes of Christmas stories and books. I used to have four boxes and a few years ago I paired it down to two boxes. I got a bee in my bonnet a few years ago to collect 25 really good Christmas stories. It got out of hand and I kept just any story—not just the really good ones.
This year I decided to only keep one box. How to declutter the stories and books?
- First of all I read every story to see if I wanted it—what a concept. Can you believe I hadn’t read them before storing them? (Me neither) And I did the same with the books.
- I did it a little at a time, every night I would read a bunch.
- I kept going until I was done—I didn’t throw in the towel after a few days.
I am so happy I now have only one box to store which was my goal.
This is a good formula when you are asking yourself, “how to declutter my kitchen, my bathroom, my desk or other space”.
