Your main task in clutter-busting is deciding what to let go of, but it makes it easier to know that getting rid of something does not automatically mean throwing it away. When you see something that makes you say, “How could I possibly throw that away?” it helps to remember that you have options. There are multiple ways to throw things away, give them away, or sell them.
This month I will be describing these different approaches as channels. I’ll be featuring 15 channels for the extra stuff that’s lying around your place. With apologies to songwriter Paul Simon, think of them as “15 ways to leave your clutter.” To simplify things, I’ll be presenting each channel right here in the form of a virtual card, about one per day for the first half of March.
