Home Organizing – Take the garbage bag challenge
Choosing what to dispose of can be hard, particularly when it’s your stuff. We all have emotional attachments to items that we just don’t use or need. One approach to challenging yourself is to reverse the normal declutter process. Instead of focusing on reducing clutter in drawers, cupboards, and the like, focus on filling a garbage bag.
This simple process is based on starting with an empty garbage bag and committing to fill it. Start with an empty bag and make yourself fill it. Home organizing isn’t just about rearranging the location of items. It’s also about being honest with yourself and getting rid of things that almost everyone else would tell you are junk.

Please don’t get me wrong; there are some items that we keep for excellent reasons; however, there are also items that we really can’t justify keeping. Ask those questions about yourself. If you need help going through that process, that’s ok – consider using a friend or hiring a home organizer who won’t judge you. The great thing about professional home organizers is they don’t know your friends and family. You can trust them and be sure that no-one will judge you.
