Even though I think I am a well organised person, I still struggle sometimes to get rid of items. I can usually think of lots of uses for items that are in my house, but that doesn’t mean I should keep them. The point of decluttering is freeing up time to concentrate on more important things than STUFF. Taking care of STUFF can take hours and hours over a year in extra cleaning, looking for items and just moving STUFF around to see behind it.
One great tip to see if you REALLY need the item, is to say the reason out loud. If this reason sounds dumb or repetitive, such as ” I need this item because I might go back to making that craft again after 10 years” or “I paid $$$$ for this item” – it is probably time to let it go.
