Have you heard of the 6 month rule? If you are a woman you might have seen it in fashion magazines, which say ‘if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in 6 months, get rid of it because you’ll probably never wear it again’.
It’s a fantastic principle to follow, albeit a hard one, but it can help you free up space and it can also apply to items you have around the house. If you haven’t used something in the last 6 months you probably won’t be using it in the next 6 months either, so it’s time to move the item on or put it in storage because it’s just taking up valuable space in your home.
Spring is usually when most people look to get ‘their house in order’. Following this principle is really simple and can help you clear out each room, drawer and cupboard methodically. So, if you haven’t used it in the last 6 months, or can’t remember using it, then sell it, bin it or if it’s valuable to you, put it in to secure self storage.
Have a think just now, or even just look around you, can you see anything you haven’t used in 6 months? What about the smoothie maker you bought last January when you started your healthy eating plan, or the picture you have inherited from your family which has sentimental value but you don’t really have anywhere to put it, or the furniture in the garage that only gets used at Christmas but stops you from getting the car in? Bin it, sell it or store it!
