Put Clutter in a Box with An Expiration Date

Put Clutter in a Box with An Expiration Date

Came across this old tweet and thought that this was a great method!

The method goes like this :

Put them in a box with a label indicating a date two or three years from now—but don’t list the contents on the label. Store the box in the attic or the basement, or wherever is convenient. Once a year, examine the labels. When you come across a box whose date has passed, throw it out without opening it. Since you don’t know what’s inside, you’ll never miss it. – Author Elaine St. James

I think it’s genius. How many toys do we keep just in case? Or anything for that matter. Apart from the annual celebration decoration, this is something for sure that I will try very soon.

What’s your declutter method?
