    I get rid of all the stuff i do not need at regular intervals. what child needs 100 items of clothing?

    then i have a tin in my daughters room an my room for all hair clips and hair ties.

    To keep on top of everything i make sure i declutter the bench tops of 1 room a day. Then on the weekend i do a major declutter of 1 room so then every 2 months i have have done a full cycle of all the cupboards in the house.

    Here's my organisational tip for today.....

    I got sick of our top bathroom drawer being a dumping ground for everyone's crap so I went to Bunnings and got some small white storage baskets and sorted all the important bits and pieces into them and chucked out all the rubbish. The bottom of the drawer was filthy so I gave it a good scrub. Now when I need to clean out the drawer I'll just toss out what I don't need from the baskets and clean them as needed. Drawer should stay much cleaner this way!!

    If you have ensemble beds: remove the dust saving fabric from under the bed and you *should* have enough room to store clothes or I have my Christmas decorations and tree under the guest bed!


    If you keep the kids school work or art make a habit of going through the years accumulation with your child and choose the twenty best things and then either make a scrapbook or scan it - make it like a year book project for the child and then throw out what is left.


    My mother used to have this thing where 'if something new comes in; something old has got to go. Her house is organised without looking OCD.


    She also taught my brother and I to go over our toys every three months or so and throw out broken or non working toys and if we got a new toy then we donated an old one.


    Wow this makes me sound like I'm obsessed!


    I also pack up clothes I haven't worn in awhile (it works for other things: books or abandoned hobbies) stuff you're not sure if you want it or not and put it in the garage. Tape it up. If in 6 months you haven't given a thought to anything in that box: donate it, without opening it.


    I have also gotten rid of all those electrical gadgets. The jaffle iron, popcorn machine, foot spa (you have one of those right?) etc. most are in the kitchen.

    You don't need them. You can cook rice on the stove, make toasted sandwiches in a frypan.


    Books are space consumers - again if you haven't read it in the past year or you don't plan to read it in the next 6 months: donate.


    Have a look at your knick knacks - do you get a smile when you dust it every time or do you have it just to prove to yourself you went to Byron Bay? Box it tape it and in 6 months donate it


    My other little tip that makes a difference; when you fold your sheets put them in the pillowcase. Looks neat in the cupboard and it's all together.

    The absolute best idea though: nothing comes in until the whole house is sorted
