It’s As Easy As A-B-C!

Author: Shannon Miller

The New Year has come and gone.

But are we still living in last year’s clutter?  It’s not easy to get organized, particularly if there’s a mountain of stuff to go through.

So where do we begin?  Remember, every journey starts with a single step…you have to start somewhere!

Check out the A-B-C system below from Good Housekeeping that can be used for getting a handle on those messy cabinets and closets!

  • Arrange items into 3 piles:
    • A: Always used
    • B: Used seasonally, for the holidays, or for other special occasions
    • C: Not seen or used in 1 year
  • What to do with each pile:
    • A:  Move these items to the front so they are readily available when you need them.
    • B: Move these items to the back, so they aren’t in your way on a daily basis, but you know where to find them when the time comes.
    • C: Unless they hold true sentimental value, donate these items, or throw them away.
TIP:  It might be hard to get started, but once you do, it’s as easy as A-B-C!
