The attic in our home requires that we drag a ladder into our bedroom to get into the space. When we moved in, I told my husband that we weren’t putting anything up there because of our age and the hassle.
Also, I had cleaned out my parents’ burgeoning attic and realized that this was a space that was too easy to fill with things you didn’t want to decide about and then would forget about.
Remove one item or box of items that you know that you don’t need.
If you don’t have an attic, go into your basement, the garage, a storage shed, or even a closet and remove one item or as many items as you can in 10-minutes
