De-cluttering Your Home

It is February and I cannot park my car in the garage. Luckily for me it was super nice this weekend and I decided to declutter the garage and shed. On Friday, I took everything in the garage to the back yard in front of the shed. I have found that the remove and replace method is the best way to organize an area. After the garage was cleaned out, I emptied the shed, sorted through all of the items in a fast sort. I had 3 piles – Keep, Donate, Sell.

Since I sell on eBay it is hard for me to throw anything away. I keep thinking to myself that if I had $1 for every item in my shed that I could pay off my car. That thinking has been the main reason that I find it hard to declutter. How much is it worth mentally to have a clutter free home? That was the big question and I feel the answer is huge. I plan to make another round of sorting next weekend and I think my thinking is going to be: “Can I purchase this item at Lowes, Bestbuy or Walmart?”. If the answer is yes then pitch it and if I REALLY need it just go buy another. It is not worth the mental strain of the clutter to hold onto items just for the sake of holding on.

    If not Gasol, what 4 would best compliment Bynum within MB’s system? Just curious, and I’m not suggesting a trade as I would imagine they would be unobtainable.Also, how many teams have a surplus of decent guards? Milwaukee, Minnesota, Cleveland, Clippers… anyone else?
