Sometimes Halloween comes to remind us of how creepy and cluttered our life has become. I use Halloween every year as a reminder to clean up and get ready to receive all those guests during thanks giving and Christmas and create space for all the new things, thinks and memories we need space for.
Halloween also tells us that we are going to set the clock back and that it is time to bring out all those heavy jackets and comforters that we so gladly put away last spring.
I use three bags and start with my closet…
I call them the green bag, red bag and blue bag
In the Green bag I place all those clothes and trinkets that I will use next year…summer shorts and T shirts and all those clothes that call out “sunshine”.
The Red bag is my gift bag… I place all those clothes that I want to give to someone who may not be as blessed as you or I and who would love those flip flops to wear at home or all those clothes you think you will not use.
The Blue bag is the my “maybe” bag…all those clothes that don’t fit but still carry a lot of memories. I cannot get myself to give my first marathon T Shirt away….ha ha!
Take the same bags to the kitchen, the shoes closet and to your study and do the same thing.
I sometime come back to the closet and will find more to go into these bags.
I usually do this after I am done. I take them to a self-Storage unit so that its out of my house and out of sight. Self-storage units typically have small units that will fit these bags and whatever else you want out of the house easily.
I will then wait for a month to see if I miss any of the things I put away in the red bag. By that time it is after Thanksgiving and I take the red bag to my favorite charity and feel good coming back to a clean uncluttered home every day and that someone is going to use all those things I could never use again.
So let’s get the holiday spirit started early !!!
