The attic is a great place to store seasonal items, but often becomes a dumping ground for things that we think we should hold onto in case we need them again. But, out of sight is out of mind and we may forget that we have an extra set of sheets or towels tucked into a box in the attic and we go out and purchase new items for our guests.
Chances are you won’t have to open too many boxes to find something you don’t need to keep.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Eliminate an item stored in your basement, garage, shed, or any other storage area you have.
