Got 30 minutes? It’s time to stop, drop, and finally organize the junk drawer!
Every house has got at least one (or four) junk drawers that are stuffed to the brim with miscellaneous cords, unnecessary nuts, nails, and bolts, dried out pens, and bills, old and new.
These drawers might seem innocent enough, but after a while, don’t you just want some order in even the tiniest spaces in your home? Whether your drawer is home to expired coupons, old Christmas cards, or an ancient VHS manual, it’s time to clear the clutter.
According to The Telegraph, the average 10-year-old owns 238 toys and plays with just 12 of those daily. That is both a crazy statistic and a lot of toys to pack up when it comes to moving!
Decluttering is essential when it comes to moving to a new house and the earlier you can start the process the better. I believe even if a house move is just an idea you’re considering, then it’s time to declutter. Why? Moving is stressful and I’ve had clients trying to declutter and pack all in the week of the move.
