As a Professional Organizer this is often how the back seat of my car looks! When clients are overwhelmed with clutter I begin by helping them select items they would like to donate. It’s a wonderful way to make space and help others.
1. Group like items. This will remind you of how many times you purchase the same items. It will also help the donation center with inventory.
2. Items must be in good condition. When you are helping others, remember that like you, they want to receive or purchase items that are clean and in good condition.
3. Detach emotionally. When it is difficult to let go of items take a deep breath, look at them and feel them, be thankful that they served you well in the past, notice how letting go becomes easier with practice, and always…enjoy the clear space!
