have an exit strategy

The other day, while pondering clutter (something I do quite often), it occurred to me that the reason clutter accumulates for many people is that they don’t have an exit strategy for their stuff. They haven’t thought through when and how the things they bring into their home will ultimately leave. The entrance strategy is simple enough: go to store, buy stuff, bag it up, and bring it home. But from there—there is no plan.

The truth is, without an exit strategy for your stuff, you will very quickly find yourself in an unfavorable situation—surrounded by clutter.

So here’s a thought for today: Create an exit strategy for your stuff.
