Got junk everywhere and not sure where to start to tackle the problem? It could be school work, toys, a shed full of tools, or clothes that you think you may wear again … one day. Here are some sure-fire ways to sort it out for good.
MAKE A ‘THINK ABOUT IT’ BOX
According to Jo Carmichael, a professional organiser and declutter expert, and founder of All Sorted Out (allsortedout.com.au), if your kids (or you!) are undecided about giving away or keeping an item, give them a ‘think about it’ box.
“Start with baby steps so you don’t overwhelm them,” says Jo.
“Place items that they’re unsure about into this box, and leave it there for a set time – say, 10 days. Put the date on the box – July 26, 2020, for example. Revisit the box on that day for a decision, and if the child is no longer fond of an item, it can be moved on. If it’s a sentimental item, it could be kept in a ‘keepsakes’ box but not on the kitchen bench in the run of everyday living.”

How We'll Connect

So while the pandemic has changed the way we connect, it hasn’t changed the simple fact that we must connect. With new tools, philosophies, and work-from-home strategies, we’re setting ourselves up for an interconnected future—whether by screen, in person, or a bit of both.
