A few good links for getting rid of stuff…

Last week’s post had five tips for how to deal with the packrat in your life. This week I thought I would post links to a few places that might help you (and your packrat) work together to trim down clutter.

I like this first article because it starts with items that most people have too much of and most everyone can manage to discard without too much angst. (Also, the first photograph, a kitchen drawer with a kind of feng shui purity, is inspiring.)

For many packrats, finding ways to make sure that the discarded items are things that “someone could use” and that they won’t “go to waste” are key in the process. This article suggests places to get rid of things where these altruistic criteria will be satisfied.

  1. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if
    you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this
    website could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
    Great blog!
