Do You Have Any Tips For Managing Clutter In Your House?

Time to clean!

One of my goals this year is to reduce the amount of things I own. Over time, I've accumulated so many trinkets, sweaters I hardly wear, and gifts I never liked but never got rid of.

And living in a small apartment, I really don't have the space for all of the random things I've collected — but I'm overwhelmed by where to start. I also know other people who are motivated to get some cleaning done, so I need your help!

For example, do you have any tips for getting rid of clothes? Like, perhaps you have a set timeline for how long you keep certain items before donating them?


Or maybe you have some general rules you follow for what you choose to keep and toss.


Do you have a good way to clean out a junk drawer and then actually keep it clutter-free?

What about pantry items, like all of the spices and boxed food that's been in your cabinets for who knows how long?

Or do you do something else with your items that need a new home?
