Recycle all paper
Recycling and reusing paper reduces the number of trees cut down, conserving our forests and contributing to temperature stability. Paper recycling is also often cheaper than disposal, saving space in landfills and also reducing pollution in the air from incineration. We suggest you make two categories for your items, one for papers to be recycled and one for the documents you need a second look at before discarding.

Create a donate pile
It is generally understood that anything you haven’t used in a year or two won’t see much use in the future. Clothes, appliances, and other day-to-day items that have been bought but not used or even those used sparingly can be donated to those in need. Donating rather than disposing of it is better for our environment. It also is a great way to share and help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Create another pile for trash
Donating and recycling are all excellent. However, there are bound to be broken furniture, toys, and things that cannot be reused, donated, or recycled. To deal with these items, we suggest creating a separate pile, ensuring you know what’s going where.

Create storage for items and mementos you are keeping
Possessions that you have decided to keep need to be dealt with appropriately to ensure they are no longer in the way or a hindrance. It is also important to remember that keeping your storage needs to a minimum contributes to future savings. You can use totes with lids and choose an out-of-sight, suitable spot around your home to keep them dry and safe.
