Decluttering Madness Week 4: The Garage. Clean out and back up the cars... because we are going to FILL them!

Designate one car for donations and one for items that need to be delivered, returned, or consigned.

Next, decide how long you have to work on this project at ONE time. 

If you have 2 hours or more, EMPTY the garage. You know it's true. Once the items are OUT of the garage, it is as easy to donate them as it is to put them back in the garage.

The garage houses all of the future projects we "think" we are going to do.

The biggest work you are going to do is DECIDE if you really are going to do those ideas and projects.

In the podcast, I talk about how I no longer have flower gardens, why I easily donate items we have purchased and never used, and how we need better tools.

It's a funny listen. And it will keep you going while you declutter guilt and expectations in the form of flower pots and old sporting equipment.

Check your storage solutions.

Now is the time to invest in a few plastic shelving units to organize what you have left and buy organizers specific to what YOU have in your garage.

5-Shelf Plastic & Ventilated Shelving

My favorite shelving units are the Home Depot brand.

Keep going! You can do this!

Keep decluttering all the way until March 31!!
