A common result of decluttering is a plethora of empty storage bins and containers! When you encounter this in your own organizing and decluttering efforts, take pause and recognize these empties as signs of progress! You’ve created space. You’ve created breathing room. You’ve let go of clutter!
After patting yourself on the back, decide what to do with all those empty containers. I recommend holding on to your favorites until you’ve finished organizing. Place your containers together in a centralized location and create a container station in your home. Then, when you organize another space in your home, “shop” your container station to see if you have something on hand that will work for your current project. When you know there’s a container you’ll never be happy using again, send it along to your favorite charity with your next load of donations!
