The Big Clean-Out: Getting Started

Organizing pros estimate that only 30 percent of us store our cars in the garage. The reason? Too much stuff. These tips will help you get rid of anything you don't need.
• Set aside at least a full day, or even a full weekend or two, to get the job done.
• Make decluttering a family project and invite over a few friends to pitch in, and it'll go a lot faster.
• Go through absolutely everything, including boxes you didn't unpack when you moved in—you never know where that family heirloom might be lurking.
