While doing an internet search to decide what to do with a black spider I found in a box, I came across this:

Here's my "Cliff's Notes" version:
Set up three outboxes labeled "Donate," "Maybe," "Sell."

My personal comments:
Since I don't have time to sell, I have just the first two. I need the number of "Donate" boxes to be greater than the "Maybe" ones.

The link to the second day of this declutter program:
https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/decluttering-cure-2022-guiding-principle-rules-37123673

Here's my "Cliff's Notes" version:
It's the mental anguish not the physical act of decluttering that slows the process.
Understanding the reasons for decluttering will maintain motivation.
Establishing a guiding principle and some ground rules will help to remain focused.

My personal comments:
I focused on this quote since this is how I felt recently, as I tend to get lax.
“A year from now you will wish you had started today.” (Karen Lamb)
Consequently, I need to decide quickly and make better use of my time.

A quote that resonates for a guiding principle are:
"Time waits for no one. You can use it wisely or waste it. The choice is yours." ~ Gee Linder

My ground rule is:
Do I need or want this item, and will I use it in my new surroundings?

The link to the third day of this declutter program:
https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/decluttering-cure-2022-junk-drawer-37123676?

Here's my "Cliff's Notes" version:
Clutter expands to the point of overwhelm.
Break the declutter project into manageable segments.
Start with the miscellaneous spot.

My personal comments:
Although there are many miscellaneous spots, I focused on the one that would give me the greatest ROI (of time and effort). This is my second visit to this spot and whittled it down some more, then reorganized which compressed the clutter. It's a baby step towards my goal. I just need to take bigger steps.
