January 15, 2010, Newsletter Issue #199: One In/One Out

Tip of the Week

One way of keeping the clutter in your drawers under control is to toss out an old thing any time you add a new thing or as it's also known, the “One In/One Out” rule. This principle works especially well in clothing drawers as we tend to hang on to our old stuff thinking we'll wear it someday (even though chances are we won't). If you add a new piece of underwear, chose an old one to toss. New pair of socks? Pitch the old ones with holes. New T-shirt, sweater, jeans? The same principle applies. See if there's an old item you'll no longer use and replace it with the new.
