People collect a large quantity of junk. Consider this: if you haven't used it a year, you probably don't need it!
· If you don't need it or use it, donate it or throw it away
· Remove books from your bookcase.
· Pack up knick knacks.
· Clean everything off kitchen counters.
· Put essential items in a small box that can be stored when not in use.
· Think of this process as a head-start on packing!
