Declutter Your Bookshelves

Declutter Your Bookshelves

If you have 5 minutes: Straighten books, and dust the very edges of the shelves and any items on display that look dusty.

If you have 10 minutes: Do a quick sort. Recycle magazines that are out of date. Pull books that you know at a glance need to be donated. Dust the shelf edges and around empty space, and move display items to dust around and under them.

If you have 15 minutes: Pull everything from the shelves. In addition to recycling magazines and pulling books to be donated, reorganize books in alphabetical order, by subject, by color, etc. Dust the full shelves before placing books back in their rightful spots.

I love this livingroom courtesy of with all the vintage globes on the top shelves. I absolutely love vintage globes, but not enough space for them -- maybe a good thing.
