A to Z: Items to Discard

Did you notice that I had not yet sent out the May edition of my newsletter? That is because I wanted to send it out on May 5. Today is the fifth anniversary of the starting date of my business, Maur Organized.

Graphic of A-ZIn celebration, I thought I would write an A-to-Z list of items to consider discarding. Remember, don’t try to do this all at once! Pick one, or a few, and make sure that they actually leave your home before you work on organizing again another day. If you only set them aside, then you have not actually made a true change by creating more space for yourself.
