Three Quick Ways To Declutter In 10 Minutes

Often “decluttering” comes with the connotation that the process will take all day (or days), and be mentally and physically exhausting. Apartment Therapy’s Fay Wolf has three easy ways to declutter in just a couple of minutes: look over your towels, old sweaters and jackets, and books.

The video above tells the tale. Of the three, we imagine most people will have a more difficult time parting with books than anything else. It makes sense that most of us have more towels and jackets or sweaters than we ever really wear, and it wouldn’t take long at all to pile up a bunch that are either ratty and worn out, the wrong size, or just will never get used again. The same applies to books — of course you wouldn’t want to get rid of any that you love, but if there are books you just don’t enjoy anymore or don’t resonate with you, your local library may be more than happy to take them off your hands, as would local charities. Pet shelters are always happy to get old towels as long as they’re still in decent condition, and there are always people who could use a jacket or sweater when the cold sets in.
