Television celeb, Peter Walsh, made getting organized cool and trendy. Thank goodness!
"Break the big jobs down into manageable tasks and tackle one room or area at a time to minimize disruption. Be ruthless when you purge. For each item, ask: 'Do I love this? Do I really need it? Can someone else use it?' If you haven't worn it, used it or needed it in a year, get rid of it. If you can replace something easily, trash it. If you have many similar items, keep one and pitch the rest."
