  • Donate clothing and older appliances that have been updated
  • Break down your items by the room to which they belong
  • Measure how much space is available and “fill” it with the items you’re keeping
  • Follow the bottom third rule: The lower third part of a stack of items is the least used, and more likely to be part of the donate pile
  • Keep your new space in mind, especially when moving. Consider how you want it to appear IE uncluttered and clean
