It’s human nature to hog stuff. Ask yourself the following questions: 1. Would you go out and buy one today? 2. Did you even remember you have it? 3. Have you used it since your last move? If you answer ‘No’ to any of the questions, then you should consider tossing it or donating it.
Every room should have a clutter bin. This is where you stow away your everyday-use items. You can purchase these plastic containers just about anywhere. Encourage your family to use the bins as much as possible. Put them away in a convenient place (underneath the bed, in the pantry, etc.) before a showing. Buyers are curious people but they won’t open containers.
