1. Throw out all your old magazines and books - if you are like I was, I had piles and piles, over 100 magazines. Did I read them? No! Did I refer to them? No! Dump them!! Recycle or sell them at your yard sale for $1 each. Same goes for books...if you have read them, dump them. Call a charity and they will come and pick up your boxes of books. Only certain design books you love should be kept as a small library for yourself.
$12 bookcase for my design books...
2. Got extra furniture like small occasional tables or chairs? If they are collecting dust - sell them or give them to Goodwill. No need for these at all. Plus if you are downsizing from a large house to a small house like I did, they will take up way too much room.
I love my white chair, the orange has to go...I will keep it but
paint it white...see how much room these need? Note piles
of mags behind the chairs...most have been taken to be recycled.
As you can see, I am definitely keeping my Anne Harwell
print so KEEP ONLY WHAT YOU LOVE!!
I spot a knick knack!! I'm totally guilty of this and
am trying to change my ways...mostly because I have
no room now...;-))
Those are my top 5 tips for clearing out your house - I hope it helps if its a project you are thinking about doing or currently working on. Hope you have a great day!
