About this Episode
Feel the freedom of an organized house when you give in to the 'urge to purge'. It's even more fun than buying something new. Take a listen and see what we mean.
Firstly, please find someone to give your discards to. If you have old towels or blankets, check with your local humane society to see if they will take them.
Secondly try to do a declutter at least once a year. If you don't the job will become too overwhelming and you won't even want to start it.
Put like things together, that way you'll be able to find things and know where everything is. Now you will be less likely to accidentally buy something you already have.

Is it used for watching TV
