We all have “those” items in our home. The pieces that either 1.) never ever get moved or 2.) you keep from year to year for those “just in case” moments which have yet seemed to happen. You begin to forget what you have collected and the piles of clutter grow. It is important then to take the time every few months to reconnect with the things around you and declutter. From our Storage and Organizational Guide, professional organizer Emily Wilska gives us tips on how to reconnect with every item in your home in a realistic and effective way:

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit.
