The last 2 posts I had on this topic "getting rid of clutter" I titled it Step 1 and Step 2 but actually they were just intros (duh!). This week is the real step one. I decided to continue posting about my progress reading this book and it's application because I believe this will encourage many who are like me.
Step 1 is titled "Kick Start - Tackling the Surface Clutter".
According to Peter, there are two kinds of clutter: 1) the Lazy clutter which are the stuff that accumulates out of negligence overtime and 2) the Stored treasures which are the ones with sentimental values that we feel attached to.
To kick off, we started with the Lazy Clutter. The acronym is FAST. It's actually a plan of action that means 1) Fix a Time 2) Anything not used for 12 months 3) Someone else's stuff 4) Trash
Like in my previous posts, I really can't go into details because it will be a long post. But I encourage you to buy the book. Last Saturday, I drove to Salvation Army with 3 BIG TRASH BAGS of STUFF that we donated. These are good usable stuff but we really don't need them now and it's better to donate to goodwill instead of cluttering our house. I tell you, it works! There's probably another 3 BIG BAGS that we will have this weekend when we start going through everyone's drawers.
I am happy and looking forward to a more de-cluttered house. I'll keep you all posted. :)
