No matter what the season, I have the urge to purge. I just hate clutter, and yet, it clings to the surfaces in my home despite my best efforts to eradicate it. This month I am on a mission to reclaim my garage so I have space to work on projects again and can get to my gardening tools. I made a 5 step plan to get rid of the clutter and am happy to report that I completed #1 on Monday, taking a giant load of items to St. Vincent de Paul that have been ready to go for months. In my article for the Kitsap Sun this month, I explore the reasons why we can’t let go of stuff and lay out my plan in detail. I encourage you to do the same before you tackle your next purge!
