Seven Steps to Lighten Your Load

Seven Steps to Lighten Your Load

  1. Do a macro sort in which you separate something into broad categories (Zones) 
  2. Take inventory of what you have 
  3. Evaluate what you need. When considering whether to keep and item, determine if it falls into one of the categories below
    1. item is used regularly 
    2. the amount of space it takes up is proportional to its value 
    3. the item has sentimental value 
    4. item is needed for a current or upcoming project 
    5. set rules 
  4. Purge what you do not need: junk/trash, recycle, sell/ consignment/ thrift/ charity 
  5. Create a home or zone to hold what you are keeping 
  6. Rearrange and organize what you are keeping 
  7. Put items away in the space created.
