This week it's the attic. Since we don't really have a functional attic that we use in my house, it's another easy week for me. But maybe not for you. I know my parents have a pretty big attic and lots of stuff gets put there over the years. Is that you too?
This Week's Goals:
1. Put the items in your attic into four piles.
Toss. Sell/Donate. Someone else's item. Keep.
2. Throw out things that need to go. Make a plan to return items that belong to someone else. (this could be an older child who has moved out of the house). Donate or sell items that you wish to do this with.
3. Categorize your Keep pile. Be sure that you really need to keep everything in this pile. If not, give it to someone who will appreciate and use it.
Kid/Baby items and toys
Memorabilia or heirlooms
Make a zone in your attic for each category to keep it organized.
4. Be sure to take items out of the attic that can be damaged by heat.
1. Secure poles to hang seasonal clothing in the roof slope between the rafters. Be sure to put the clothing in zippered garment bags.
Do you have an attic? What do you store there?
