A Limpiar!

Mar 16, 11 A Limpiar!

Sure Hoarders has a certain can’t-take-your-eyes-off-the-car-wreck appeal, but how scary would it be if you actually turned into one? Not an unlikely possibility if you don’t get some decluttering done – fast! If your home is starting to resemble a ropavejero’s cart, then it’s time for a good old fashioned Spring Cleaning. Here’s a few suggestions to help you get the job done:

  • In this digital age Netflix and iTunes have made holding onto physical CDs and DVDs a thing of the past. Same goes for Kindle and books. Trade all your stuff in at Amazon and get a gift card deposited into your account. Yay!
  • Obviously it’s important to keep your receipts in order, especially now that tax return time is around the corner, but if you still have them all stuffed into a shoe box then it’s time you looked into Neat Receipts.
  • Any old appliances you don’t use (who are you kidding with that cappuccino machine? You know you live on Starbucks) put up for sale on Craigslist.
  • Take your old clothes to thrift shops. The evidence of your “what was I thinking?” phases (parachute pants, anybody?) may be someone else’s treasure.
  • When going through your stuff follow this rule of thumb: if you don’t love it and/or really need it, it goes in la basura, no questions asked.

Spring is the perfect time to get rid of the old, and let new and fresh energy pour in. A clutter-free environment is the first step towards a clutter-free life.
