To sort something means to separate it into different categories or groups, usually so that you can do different things with them. A common decluttering method is the Four Box method. This is where you find four (large!) boxes and label them: Toss (throw away), Give Away/Sell, Store, and Put Away.

As you are cleaning up your house or apartment or even just one room, you sort everything into one of these four boxes. Don’t need it? Toss or Sell box. Need it sometimes, but not very often, put t in the Store box (for storage.) Use it regularly, then put it away (or in the washing basket if it’s dirty.)

Using the Four Box method and sorting through your things can really help clean up your space quickly. Have you ever tried it?
