How Often Do You De-Clutter?

How often do you go through drawers, closets, etc. and get rid of things you don't use/want?

I try to go through everything about once a year.

  • Every season for clothes. For everything else basically all the time. I go through things when I am home like kitchen drawers etc and see whats there I can get rid of or needs to be replaced. I try and devote at least an hour a day when I have down days to doing it. It makes it alot easier for because I know exactly what we have and know what we need and its easier then having to replace it all it once.

  • When the moods hits. We have just moved and I'm slowly getting things out and put up and organized. I HATE clutter with a passion. I feel stressed when things are cluttered. But at least one or twice a year and around warm weather I have a yard sale.

  • Each seasonal change...
    this way I can keep ahead clutter...if items are going into the annual family yard sale it is put away in boxes and if not
    sold they are donated... or put on free cycle...

  • I am currently trying to do this, I usually only do this 5-6 times a year but my house is so cluttered and with 5 kids they and their daddy are pack rats that keep everything so I am waiting til they go to school & work and tossing it out.
