You have rolled up your sleeves, worn your cleaning hat and are now ready for de-cluttering your home. We all have things lying around our house which we don’t necessarily need but have kept it thinking we might need it someday. This concept of “needing it someday” is the source of all the clutter in your house. When you begin cleaning, every item that you come across, no matter how good the condition of it is, as yourself “Will i make use of this in the next 6 months?” If the answer to this is a reverting “No”, then you have to get rid of that stuff, if you are not going to be using it in the next 6 months, something that gets used or not even once during a year then it has no business in your house. You then feel bad throwing out a perfectly good pair of skis, don’t throw it out, sell it and make money out of it. The up side of every clean-up job is the garage sale. A lot of things that you don’t need might be useful to someone else. Hold a garage sale and get rid of it while making some money in return.
