    Out with the old, in with the new — that’s what ringing in the new year is about, right? And, while that is a good motto for many areas of your life, it can be downright crucial for making your home more efficient and attractive. An important part of sweeping out the old is strategizing about what, and how, to purge.

    We’re not just talking an annual deep-cleaning of your home — we’re suggesting a mindset change in the very way you think about clutter and organization moving forward. Just as there are rules when it comes to tossing mascara, there are also expiration dates for many things in your home.

    Ahead, four professional organizers and declutter experts give us the ultimate checklist for purging. From questions to ask as you sift through items to smart ways to remain organized after the big purge, you’ll find everything you need to complete your home cleanse.
