Tip #5 – Purge first, organize second.
Why spend all this time organizing what you are just going to get rid of anyways? When you clear out, declutter, and purge FIRST, you end up not having to organize near as much. Set out to live by this rule each time you want to live with less!
Kristin’s Action Plan: It took me way too long to understand this concept. Organizing is something I love doing, so naturally I would choose to organize first. I have learned though, that I was organizing items I never used and had no use for. I now find much more enjoyment in organizing because I have FIRST purged the unneeded and unwanted.
