The aim of this mid-way tidy up is to create some space. Only start this step when:
In this step you deal with the piles of things you’re not keeping.
Bag these up and put them outside immediately.
Bag up and put by the front door or in the car boot.
Bag, box and label these things and make a note of when you will action them.
Don’t fall into the tomorrow trap, set a realistic date with yourself to do this.
If you have large things that are easy to move to their new home, do this now.
A word of caution: don’t use storage, garage or garden as ways to avoid letting things go.
