Getting Unstuck When Organizing
If you are stuck on whether to keep or get rid of an item, ask yourself these 7 questions.
HINT – if you say “No” to one, some or all of these questions, considering getting rid of it!
Remember….the more of these decisions you make, the easier it gets.
Getting Unstuck Question One
Have I used this in the last year?
Getting Unstuck Question Two
Will I use it in the next year?
Getting Unstuck Question Three
Would I buy this item again today?
Getting Unstuck Question Four
If it’s broken is it worth fixing or will I spare the time & money to fix it?
Getting Unstuck Question Five
Is it easily replaced or borrowed if I need it again?
Getting Unstuck Question Six
Would I keep it if I moved?
Getting Unstuck Question Seven
Do I have a duplicate of this item in better shape?
If you are still agonizing over an item, put it in a box with a sticky note with an expiration date on it for a few months from now.
If you don’t reach for the item in that time frame, remove it from your home.
