Description
Life can be messy. Sometimes the mess can be a barrier to the life you hope to live. Have you ever said: • “I’d bake more if I could find the counter space. We need a bigger kitchen.” • “Who has time for hobbies? There’s so much work to do around here.” • “I’d like to have friends over, but the house is such a disaster. We’d have to spend hours cleaning! Who wants to do that after a full day of work?” Sometimes the answer isn’t more time or more space—it’s less stuff. But how do you begin to sort out everything that has accumulated over the years? And how do you keep from accumulating more? Declutter for Good: Share Your Stuff & Reclaim Your Life will inspire you to rid yourself of the possessions that are clogging up your plans, goals and dreams so you can pass them along to those who could use them. This guide gives you tips for dealing with the clutter in every room of your house, as well as how to handle tricky items such as hazardous waste, household chemicals, family heirlooms, electronics, and outdated but still sensitive paperwork. Are you weighed down by extra belongings? Do you want more from life than just shuffling and reshuffling the stuff that surrounds you? Do you want to share your stuff with others who could use it? Then it’s time to declutter for good!
