I’ve written blog posts about repurposing and I’ve blog posts on getting rid of things as you bring things into you home. I’ve also talked about rotating your clothes. Now I am writing about something that I am practicing myself. Only bringing items into the home that will be used.ACTUALLY USED! And I don’t mean in a year! And I don’t mean MIGHT be used. I’m talking about going to the store and only buying clothes, accessories, food items, appliances, etc that will have a spot to be and will be used.
I got the idea from a minimalist friend of mine. I didn’t want to go that extreme, but the thought is similar. The benefits are less clutter forming, money-saving, knowing what you actually have in your home, and things get used. I am on a new crusade to use the items that are in my home. Get my money’s worth! AND as a Professional Organizer, I want to eliminate clutter! This accomplishes both! Think about this!
