Mindful : April 2015
5 Use three boxes When digging through closets and cupboards, label three boxes to receive the items: keep, donate, and throw away. Start sorting. 6 “Not-sure” box You may need a fourth box for stuff you’re not sure you should keep but can’t throw away on a whim. The not-sure box prevents you from delib- erating for hours, fondling tattered teddy bears and speculating about whether it’s time to revive your passion for home canning. That ca n leave you exhausted. But if the box overflows too quickly, you might have to check yourself (this is a good time to deploy your clutter buddy). 7 Three-year rule If you haven’t used it in three yea rs, chuck it—this applies to clothing, kitchen gadgetry, geegaws stuffed away in the basement, gardening tools... you name it. Chances are no matter how nifty the gadget or how memorable the outfit, if you haven’t put it on or used it in three years it’s not worth your space. 8 Repurpose if the purpose is clear Got a spare dresser you’ve cleared out? Good job! If you can think of a clear use for this newly liberated piece of furniture, repurpose it. But if you’re reaching for a n excuse to hang on—I’ve had that thing since my first college apartment!—it’s time to let go. You might surprise yourself with how liberated you’ll feel. 9 Keep your shoes off the floor Shoes have a way of taking up a lot of floor space in closets, in entry ways, in mud rooms. Scattered about on the floor, they have a way of making a place feel very disordered. They can also make a closet impossible to navigate. Get some simple shelving, a rack, or a hanging shoe holder. Floor space will insta ntly open up. Don’t have room to store them other than on the floor? Get rid of some of your shoes or remove something else to ma ke space to stow them. Yet another excuse for offloading excess crap! 26 mindful April 2015 PHOTOGRAPHS:©ISTOCK.COM/GERENME,©PIOTRPAWINSKI/DOLLARPHOTOCLUB how to live a mindful life
