    How To Eliminate Clutter In Your Life

    Is clutter weighing you down at home and the office? 

    Not sure where to start when it comes to clearing things out? 

    Here are 3 ideas to help you eliminate clutter to simplify and  
    streamline your life. 

    1. Tidy up your desk 

    Do you find it difficult to work on your desk or find office  
    supplies when you need them? Remove old sticky notes,  
    out-dated papers and notes, junk mail, magazines, as well  
    as any obvious trash and wrappers from your work space.  
    Put office supplies such as pens, paper clips and pushpins  
    in small decorative containers, or store items in flat storage  
    bins or trays in your desk drawers. Don’t forget to chuck  
    any broken office supplies or dead plants that are on your  
    desk or sitting in your office. 

    2. Clear out your closet 

    Begin by purging any clothes that are obviously stained,  
    damaged, ripped, torn, or no longer fit. Next, remove any  
    clothing and accessories you no longer want or need.  
    Finally, take a good look at items you haven’t worn or  
    used in a year or two as well as items that are out-dated.  
    Will you really use these items soon, say tomorrow or  
    even in a months’ time? It might be time to bite the bullet  
    and say goodbye to these items. 

    3. Give your computer a cleanse 

    Clutter can appear in many different forms on your computer.  
    Consider clearing out files from your desktop screen (file items  
    or delete them), cleaning out or emptying your computer’s trash  
    or recycle bin, defragmenting your drive, or getting rid of  
    applications and programs you no longer use. Finish things  
    off by wiping down your computer’s screen and keyboard with  
    an appropriate computer cleansing solution and cloth to clear  
    off dirt and germs.
