Tip from Stephanie Roberts: The 48 hour rule
Make an effort to move stuff out of the house within 48
hours of the time that you decide to let it go. Too often
clutter moves from the drawer or closet only as far as the
back hall or the garage, where it sits for weeks waiting
for someone to get around to taking it to the dump,
recycling center, or thrift store.
Making lots of smaller trips to local charity shops may not
be the most time- or energy-efficient, but it will help you
see progress more quickly and will fr@e up the energy in
your home a lot faster than waiting until you're "done"
(whenever that might be) so you can handle it all at once.
