This article is the third in a three part series on downsizing and decluttering, organizational strategies, and junk hauling. If you haven’t already read parts 1 and 2, I recommend you do before continuing.

Many have found that owning less simplifies their lives. R&R is here to help with junk hauling services.

Oprah’s closet method

One of the most difficult areas for people to downsize is often their closet – and I’m not just talking about the ladies! If you’re having a hard time deciding what’s important to you in your wardrobe, consider giving this method a try. Take everything out of your closet, and put it all back with the hangers backwards. Then, when you wear something, put it back with the hanger the normal way. After a few months you’ll start to get a good idea of what you’re using and what’s just taking up space. This technique can also be easily adapted for things that don’t go on hangers – put shoes away upside down, or switch up your folding technique for items in the dresser.

Take 5

Not every decluttering and organizing project needs to be an ordeal. For this method, declutter 5 minutes at a time. Pick something quick from your “divide and conquer” task list, or for more ideas check out this article by Leo Babauta at Zen Habits for 18 different 5 minute decluttering tasks.
