2. if not, is it something I love?
3. am I keeping this out of obligation?
4. do I think I should love it?
5. am I saving this just in case?
6. do I have multiples of the same thing?
7. could something else do the same job?

And so begins a new year.....some moments, that gets me excited and re-energized and some moments, just tired! So, my cleaning tip for the new year is to just start small. Make a realistic plan, one that you can fudge on and it will be ok. Think "freedom" which to me means to declutter.....clear out a closet and a little bit of your mind as well. It really is liberating!! So here's to a clearer mind and home! Remember, you are not alone, enlist help if needed, it can give you a boost of energy and courage to start! Sometimes that's all you need!
