I don’t know about you, but summer is my time to completely start purging my entire house. I feel like the winter is the time of year for me personally that accumulates the most clutter around the house.

Everyone is just pretty much trying to get from point A to point B because of how cold it is outside. For some reason, that causes a ridiculous amount of clutter in my house and spring/summer is the time when I start to get motivated to get organized again.

If you’re on the same path as me and you’re trying to get yourself organized again, there are a few rules you should know when it comes to getting as organized as possible.
