How to Purge Sentimental Clutter...in your linen closet and beyond
My friend mentioned that she had this "junk drawer" of sorts, that has been with her through every move; it's not organized, but all of those random photos are in there. I realized that my issue is that I cannot complete a full category for those images so I often end up putting them in drawers, and bins, and boxes and sometimes a photo would make a random appearance while cleaning out a space. There has to be a better way.
While I ponder the best storage solution for me (I've seriously thinking of her photo box idea, but with some type of subcategories yet to be labeled), but in the meantime I thought it would be helpful to provide tips on how to actually get rid of things that are sentimental to you.
The video below is my first attempt at purging my linen closet. I will actually decorate/organize it at some point, but my first step was to gut.it.out.
Now I just need to decorate and organize this space, but that's a challenge for another post...
Because I have this sentimental problem, I thought it best to share the words of someone who does a better job of purging - Kathryn, from Do It On a Dime.
I know some of you might be thinking, didn't she show us this video earlier this year? And you would be correct, but sometimes we need to revisit those people that give us inspiration to do better. And this is one of my choices for this spring cleaning season.
I need to do better. I am going to do better. How about you?
