Get Organized for a Clutter Free Life

Get organized, may be easier said than done. It does not happen overnight, but it can happen, especially with the tips below from Barry Blank of National Estate Jewelers. Separate your clutter into the following boxes to help you create a clutter free life:

  • Lifeboat Supplies (Items you need to survive on a daily basis)
  • Feel Good or Sentimental Box
  • Trash
  • Donate
  • Giveaway
  • Sell

 

“Well begun is half done.” – Aristotle

When preparing to organize clutter, take your time. For some it can be overwhelming. Do it at your own pace – do one draw or one corner of a room at a time. Getting started is usually the hardest step when trying to get organized. As time goes by, believe it or not, this often becomes a natural habit.

Similar boxes are also utilized when dealing with piles of paper.

  • To do
  • To be paid
  • Giveaway (Magazines) – Remove any personal information, such as name and address.
  • Shred
  • Trash
  • Create file (save)

Whether you are accumulating clutter at home or at work, start now and get organized. Remember to de-clutter your jewelry box and safety deposit box as well. Many people come to National Estate Jewelers of East Brunswick to sell their jewelry, coins and other valuables. These are the items that reduced the noise… the stress… the clutter, so that they can now use the cash to enjoy a new hobby, take a vacation or buy a new piece of jewelry.
