IMG_1438 Are you realizing you can’t take everything?

How many times have you moved the same item and then never wore it or used it?

I have many clients tell me that ‘this and that” (even expired food) has gone around the country and then we meet and decide together to finally take some action and say goodbye. They always say it wasn’t so hard after all.

It costs about $50 to move a box of stuff that can probably be replaced for less. Why not save money, time and space so you can live free with less. Consider the people who could benefit from having your items that no longer work for you.

I was very impressed with the “Resource Depot” in Palm Beach where our local chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers met this month. This nonprofit donation based creative reuse center diverted 95 tons of unusable materials from the waste stream last year!!!!!!

That is just one of sooooo many places to pass on your items. Check out Lotus House, JAFCO and any other place you may feel passionate about. If are meaningful items you just can’t part with, this is when you box them up and label them memories or memorabilia. We are allowed to be sentimental too.

Take the time now and your stress will be less when you unpack once again.
