Cure for the After Christmas Doldrums

Are you feeling closed in and claustrophobic?  It could be the  "after holidays" clutter that seems to linger in the house.  


Have you gotten rid of all the empty boxes that held those gifts?   

How about the older clothes that have been replaced by the latest styles?  You could be running out of space to 
store them.  Your jewelry box might be overflowing, too.



The kids' rooms are most likely crowded with older unused toys and clothes along with all the new treasures. 





We'll start with the bedroom closet.  If you haven't worn a garment for two years or if you "might" lose enough to get back into it, then, it needs to go.  The same goes for all the pieces of costume jewelry you haven't worn in two or three years.  



When I put my Christmas decorations away I noticed some that I haven't used for a couple years. They have to go also.  I'm already breathing easier.  



Well, you get the idea.  Take all those unused items to the local charity organization and they will be glad to find a place for them.  Then you can pour yourself a fresh cup of whatever from that new brew maker and sit down and enjoy the newly neat surroundings.
