The Three Pile Method
The best way to purge and de clutter your home.
It’s the beginning of a new year and if you are like most people you take this time to not only put away all of your Christmas decorations but, to clear your home of excess clutter. Psychologist say that when we purge and de clutter our living spaces we are actually trying to regain control over our lives. December is a month of excessive spending, eating and revelry, it is no wonder in January all we want to do is press the reset button and start fresh.
Where to begin? We suggest you tackle this arduous task room by room, and separate all of the things you no longer want in your home into three piles. The first pile is for garbage and recycling. This pile is for things which are no longer of any use to you, your family or anyone else. Make sure you separate the garbage from the recyclables and if you are disposing of any electronics, computers or hazardous materials ensure you do so responsibly. The second pile is clothing, household items etc. which are in good condition but have outlived their use in your household. The Oasis Clothing Bank is more than happy to take pile number two off your hands (see below for contact info). Finally, pile number three are those items you do not need in your home all year round a.k.a seasonal items, and those items you are holding onto to because of personal and sentimental reasons. By the time you have systematically gone through all the rooms in your home you will find that this third pile has become quite large. At this point some of you will store pile number three in boxes and or bags and stash them away in your furnace room, or garage. If however, you are like most urban dwellers and space is a precious commodity, pile three will end up in an off-site storage facility. We suggest when storing your seasonal and personal items that each box is clearly labeled if not itemized and, that you store the lesser needed boxes towards the back of your unit.
We at Oasis Clothing Bank would like to wish all of you the best for a healthy and happy 2015 and happy purging!!!!
