Sounds easy right? But trust me it is harder than you think. First, when you decide to declutter, you are going to throw away all the unnecessary things or the things that’s with you for the longest time with a sentimental value or for whatever reason.
I, myself is also having a hard time because I like keeping things that I don’t even use or don’t even need. Like for example, point cards, papers, pouches, etc. You think you need everything that is in your house but the truth is, YOU DON’T. You don’t need a lot of pouches, a lot of scrap papers, old receipts, old cards/point cards, old boxes, etc. You just like keeping those things. Today, I want to share some tips and ideas that I have learned through the process of decluttering some of my own things.
Before I share some tips, you have to remember these : You need and you don’t need. You will use or you won’t use. When you go through your things one by one, ask yourself if you REALLY need to keep this or that. Trust me it really helps!
We will start at our room first.
First. Drawers. Like the small drawers where you keep little things and stuff? Go through them one by one, and put them all in one places. Ask yourself if you need to keep it and if you are going to use it or no. Like for example, ballpens. Do you need a lot of ballpens? Check them if they still have ink. Keep some and throw away those you will never use.
Second. Closet. Check all your clothes. Throw those clothes that aren’t good anymore and those you don’t want anymore or doesn’t fit, give them to charities. Again, ask yourself Do I need this? Am I going to still wear this? Just yes or no. Don’t try to think of some reasons why because you will end up keeping it.
Third. Storage and boxes. Go through your storage bins and you will find some gold and copper lol. Check those if you still need to keep the things that is in your storage. When I did that, I found some old pictures of my ex and I and I threw it immediately haha! You will really never know what you will find haha! Trash or gold! I found some money, old bills and documents, pouches that I don’t need, baby oil and nail polish remover haha! I threw them all! Shoe boxes, throw them away because it’s taking up a lot of space. Boxes from your online shop, magazines etc.
I know it’s hard to throw something that you bought long time ago or has a sentimental value for you but trust me, you will feel good afterwards.
Lots of love! X
