Unless you live in some kind of sterile German-inspired minimalist loft, you probably have an accumulation of crap like the rest of us. And it would be great to get rid of it before you cross the line into "borderline hoarder" territory.

Luckily, there's a woman named Vivienne Palmer in Boulder, Colorado who's come up with a technique to de-clutter your place in the course of a year . . . and it actually sounds simple enough to work.

All you do is get rid of 10 things a day. Whether you throw them out, sell them on eBay or Craigslist, donate them, give them away to friends, or burn them in a ritualistic bonfire in the backyard . . . just get rid of them.

By the end of the year, your house will have 3,650 fewer pieces of useless junk in it. And that's GUARANTEED to make it a more comfortable place to live.

Plus, Vivienne found that she's making a surprising amount of money from selling her junk online. She's saving it all, and expects to make several thousand dollars by the end of the year to use on a family trip.

Seems excessive though. Who has time to get rid of ten things a day? But even if it was just ONE thing a day, you'd have 365 fewer pieces of junk a year.
