Declutter, Then You Might Have Room

We've talked about where to put your preps in small living spaces. But how much STUFF do you have? If you clear out one space, does it fill up with STUFF? That is a problem I have. I got a freezer cheap because I friend let me borrow theirs and the space they had it in filled up with....STUFF.
How much does all this STUFF cost you? Well there is time, energy and money. There is loss of concentration while digging through STUFF and frustration when you can't find what you were looking for. I know I had xyz but I guess I don't so I'll buy another one. Fast forward a month, a year, 5 years, and you have 5 or 10 xyz's because you couldn't find the first one, or the second....
I'm not telling you to pass up the best sale in the century to stock up on whatever widgets you want but it has to be organized. I'm guilty of yarn, fabric, kitchen gadgets and books. I can tell you right now I have about 5 or 10 cookbooks that I only make one recipe out of.
Hopefully this weekend I will be making three piles of STUFF. One for donations, one for trash and one for ebay. This way, I hope, I can finally get my storage room and other areas of the house cleaned out.
I went to a thrift store recently and continuously asked myself, do I need it and where would I put it. I left empty handed.
So, try to get rid of some STUFF and reclaim wasted time!
