Japanese home organizer Marie Kondo has helped thousands get rid of the clutter in their homes and find a new, better relationship with the objects in their lives, first with her book "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and more recently with the Netflix series that captures her in action. The bottom line of her method is to only keep things that spark joy. But, in honor of "Old Stuff Day" on March 2, there's some old stuff — things you might consider clutter — that you should keep. The key is knowing which ones and putting them in the right place.
Take moving boxes. They're an investment, either in money or time. Chances are, you'll need them more than once, either for yourself or someone in the family. Break down the best ones in a variety of sizes, and put them against the wall of a big closet, somewhere in the garage or up in the attic. If you use plastic bins to move, stack them, put the lids inside the top one and tuck into a corner of your home. Here are some other decluttering day tips that Marie Kondo might not know about.
