We have a storage unit and it is a big one. Much of what we have in it are supplies for rental properties. I keep the house cleaned out pretty well.

My 2018 project has been clearing the far, so good Debbie Reynolds but I still have some closets to get busy on!

Oh my gosh - timely post, Lisa! So, today, I had a 1:00 meeting and had taken the day off to get caught up on some organizing - my attic! I started early in the morning and took several breaks to check email, take calls and of course, check in on social media. At 12:54, I realized that I hadn't checked my phone and I still had to 'get ready' for my 1:00 meeting - thank goodness it was an online conference - not IN PERSON!

I was a hot mess and BARELY made my meeting but, I got through a TON of boxes and have a full load to take to Goodwill tomorrow. Organizing to me, is rejuvenating!

Lisa, I had a storage unit for  about 20 years here in Los Angeles, so about a couple year ago I finally got rid of it... well now the garage is still full but at least I am not paying $ 100 a month:))Endre

P.S.;As soon as it cools down and it is not 90 degrees in the garage I will start purging:))

Morning Lisa.

My wife is a impulse buyer.  In a day or two most items are returned, those that are not returned, well that's another story

Thanks for the tips, Lisa.  I could definitely use a bit more organization in my home.

Thank you very much for sharing this video. We need to get rid of a lot of stuff at our house.

Good morning Lisa - I think that I have a lot of things that belong to the donate and toss catagory.

I feel like I spend every spare minute trying to tame the clutter!

Lisa, never thought I kept a lot of extra stuff, but now moving, have found the larger the space, the more crap you can stuff into closets and the garage!

Hi Lisa

I suspect most of us can use some help in getting rid of things, AND doing a better job of organizing what we have and need to store. Despite multiple moves I still have more stuff than we need and use, including storing our kids' stuff! We are gearing up for a major overall!

Lisa these are good tips and suggestions.  Thanks for the video.
