Warm Up Your Decluttering Muscles this Winter
Downsizing and Moving Tips Plus Little Bits of Info to Help Your Loved One
Sentimental About Books? Take it Slow
Start small by donating a book or two at a time to a Little Free Library. For help finding one in your neighborhood, enter your zip code in the online map.
Before donating a book, fan through its pages to see if anyone has stashed cash or letters inside.
Once you gain steam and have filled a small box, check your local library to see if it accepts used books. Here are a few that do in the Chicago suburbs:
Evanston Public Library: Better World Books donation box outside near the parking lot.
Glenview Public Library: Used Book Store
Wilmette Public Library: Friends of the Library used book store

My Decluttering Secret: An Apron with Pockets
I love wearing my bright pink apron with pockets when I help clients declutter. I keep a Sharpie, Post It notes, packing tape, my phone, and any keys I'm using in the large pockets so everything I need is handy.
Bonus: I got my pretty personalized apron on Etsy; I felt great supporting another small business!
