How’s the spring cleaning coming along? What, you’re overwhelmed? Need a few tips on tossing things out? Sunny Schlenger, author of the new book Organizing for the Spirit (Jossey-Bass, 2004, $14.95), available at, offers some advice for pack rats. She suggests setting up four piles:

- Throw-out pile. The item has outlived its usefulness. Or it’s no longer interesting to you. And it’s not in good enough shape to pass on to others.

- Giveaway pile. A friend would like it, or a charity would appreciate it.

- Storage pile. For the memories it holds, you’ll pack it up and store it away.

- Display pile. You’d like to set it out. You enjoy looking at it or using it.
