I love watching home improvement shows.  The other day they were remodeling a kitchen.  The owners were not quite horders but their kitchen was messy and no counter space left to even eat.  The remodelers made a few boxes to put stuff in as they cleaned up.  Of course there was a garbage can, a not used in 12 months box, and a couple others.  But my favorite thing was when all of the utensils, small items, and junk drawer items went in a box.  For the next couple weeks the owners were told as they used the items in the box they could put them in a drawer.  What was left after a couple weeks got taken away (sale or giveaway).  I like this idea and it could work for anywhere in the house.  Our clothes closet, put the clothes to one side of the closet and as you use them, pull them forward.  Get rid of the rest.  Guys, do you really need the container full of spare cable wires, connectors, etc?  If you haven't watched the show Horders, it is great.

When it comes to clothes, if it doesn't fit anymore or I haven't worn it for a season ( don't wear a pair of shorts one summer, i.e.) it goes to the thrift store. Anything else for the most part is just stuff and most of us surround ourselves with useless things we don't really need!

Perfectly good, but don't need, don't use, it goes to Rescue Mission thrift store  Doing this constantly, therefor no pile up.  Not a hoarder here.

There are 3 main questions I ask myself... 1) When is the last time it has been used? 2) Will I ever use it again?  3) Are all the parts there and not broken? I hate clutter, so these question make it easier for me to get rid of things when need be to free up some space.

I'm a little more callous; if it hasn't been worn or used in one calendar year out it goes!!

If we haven't used it or worn it  in a few years get rid of it.  Try to stop people from giving us stuff they no longer want.

1. Can I sell it on ebay?

2. Can someone else use it, if so I give it to them.

3. If 1 or 2 doesn't apply, I recycle or toss it.
