If your goal is organization then getting rid of clutter is a must.

What is clutter?

NOUN; A confused or disordered state or collection

VERB; To make disorderly or hard to use by filling or covering with objects

Collections can be a problem and before you know it, there are chickens everywhere. You didn’t mean for it to get out of control, but it did and now you need a change.

Now what?

Some options;

For starters, you need to inform those who buy you gifts that you no longer wish to collect chickens. That can be a blow to the gift buyer because up until now you were super easy to buy for.

Get rid of a few. Pick out the ugly and the broken. Donate or throw away. It’s a start and you will eventually see that it wasn’t that bad to shed a few.

Memorialize your collection by taking a picture and framing it.

Sell on the internet or in local classifieds.

Give to family members that might want it as a conversation piece.

Get rid of what you don’t need, use or enjoy.
