Tip of the week…
Easy targets for spring decluttering
Vases: “People often underestimate the number of vases they have tucked away.” So haul them all out, take inventory, and keep only enough to accommodate the flowers you bring into your home. Some florists will happily use your extra vases.
Hangers: Cull the random collection in your closets of hangers that are nonmatching. Your dry cleaner and local thrift shop might be able to use the leftovers.
Tools: Some homeowners don’t need more than the basics. Once you identify duplicates and tools you’ll never use, you can donate them to Habitat for Humanity.
Paint: Opened paint is best used within two years, so don’t store it forever. Latex paint can be put out with the trash, but open lids to dry it out first, using sand or cat litter to absorb large quantities. Consult your municipality on ways to safely discard oil-based paints.
