Things to Do During the Corona Virus Quarantine – Remove the Clutter
Are we preserving price heirlooms or are we just adding to the number of dumpsters our poor children will have to fill with our junk after we are gone?
Here are some tips to remove the clutter from your life.
Ask. Some of us assume that one day kids will want their old report cards and the shoes they outgrew when they were five. If your kids are old enough to make a decision, ask if they want you to keep things for them or to get rid of them.
Remove duplicates. Do you have four great baking pans but only use two of them? Maybe it’s time to pass one or to someone who would appreciate them. Do you have three devices for making coffee? Do you really use more than one? If not, the others can go.
You can only eat an elephant one bite at a time. Tackling your whole home or garage at once is probably intimidating. What is more digestible? Start with four items a day. If you feel like doing more some days, great. If you don’t, you’ll still see a big dent at the end of each week.
We hope these tips are helpful in helping you say goodbye to clutter.
Did you find some activities you and your family can enjoy during the Corona Virus / Covid 19 quarantine?
We hope so!
