#Unclutter2017 – Box it up

Today’s tip emulates the experience of Ryan Nicodemus of The Minimalists who famously boxed up the contents of his entire home, deciding to keep only those items that he used in the subsequent 21 days.
Try this yourself, but on a smaller scale. Take a look at a specific space where you are storing little-used items. In particular, look at a place such as hard-to-reach high cupboards, basement storage units or utility room shelves.
Box up the seldom-used items and retrieve only what you need within the next month (or within a period of time you decide). If, after that period has elapsed, you haven’t emptied the box, take it (as it is) to the recycling centre, charity shop or homeless shelter.
If you’re feeling bold, host a packing party to invite some friends to help you.
