Spring Cleaning

I've never been one for spring cleaning, but I do appreciate a cleaned-out garage, an organized closet, and a large box of discards in the back of the car ready to donate to the local second-hand shop.

But how does one overcome the hate of organizing? Well, finding these two rules has helped this hater:

The two questions are:
If I needed this item, where would I look for it? (take it there)

If I needed this item, would it ever occur to me that I already have one? (If not, get rid of it because I’d just buy a new one if I needed it.)
Rules found here. Also, love this post: laugh out loud about de-slobbing your life and the real challenges that one might face while trying to do it. Very helpful.

Loved those questions. Sometimes organizing/dejunking can become overwhelming but these questions just make sense. I read the article too about holding onto someone else's memories. Been there before. Thanks for the helpful tip!
