Even if you pay someone to clean house, you still have to straighten things and decide what needs to be thrown out. A great time for discarding clutter is when the mail arrives. Have your recycling bags or bins handy — don’t let junk mail get past the front entryway.
Look at the magazines and newspapers you receive. Are you reading them or are you saving them until you have “more time?” Maybe you wouldn’t miss some of them if you cancelled your subscriptions. An appetite for magazines might be satisfied by an occasional copy purchased from a store, or by a used copy from the Boise Public Library (10 cents each). Inundated by catalogs? Ask catalog mailers to remove your name from their lists at catalogchoice.org.
