TACTIC: As you start to identify items to go, try to get rid of bulky items first. Specifically, look out for items that are:
TACTIC: Set up a time limit on completing tasks in the clutter triage.
In the clutter triage, the step of determining the recipients of items to give away can stop the process in its tracks. Setting up a deadline of up to two weeks maximum might help motivate the process. After that, the item should automatically revert to being disposed of as garbage.
TACTIC: Set up a standing order for food to be delivered to your home.
Every 2 weeks, a box of local, organic fruit and veggies are delivered to me by a Seattle company, Pioneer Organics. The price is surprisingly low, and it is direct debit. I save time on going to the grocery store, eat better, and experience new foods I might not have bought because I am unfamiliar with them. I also support local and organic growers, and it supports my recent goal of becoming vegetarian.
