We are moving from a 3 bedroom split foyer with a garage and family room to a 4 bedroom with a detached garage with no family room so I want to make it as efficient as possible. I am trying to eliminate as much as possible but we still have alot of stuff to take and need to some organizational help lol

I told my DH that I would like to throw it all away but I can't bring myself to do it.

Freecycle. I try to keep a box handy and throw stuff in there and list every few days. I love knowing my stuff is not just going to the dumpster and someone else will get use out of it. And all I do is leave it on my porch.

My DH wants to keep alot to. My problem is throwing away stuff that someone else might be able to use. I have took a ton of stuff to our local pregnancy center and I gave a whole truck load of stuff to a woman having a yard sale to raise money for her cancer treatment.

I could do that. My problem is I never have time to meet people but I could definitely leave it on the porch.

I declutter. I constantly go through things. Papers, clothes, toys, closets, drawers, etc. Get rid of all the things that no longer get used or just no longer needed. I'm weird about clutter though so at least once a month I'm going through things sometimes more.

We live in a very small house and we've been getting by but the closer we get to next year the less I'm wanting to keep up with this dang small house because we are getting a bigger house next year.

I need to make a effort to do that at least once a month to. With 3 boys toys and clutter pile up quick.
