Here are some tips on how we can get rid of the clutter that we are attached with!
If you are having trouble letting go of your gifted clothes that fit you 5 years ago, or your child's belonging or you are struggling to declutter from the one's you think you are attached too.
To make it a little easy, we are here to share some of the tips we learned for tackling emotionally-charged clutter. We are the creators of these clutter and we can be the ones who can destroy this clutter. And to destroy this clutter, we will ask ourselves our some few basic questions.
If yes, how upset would I be? A day, few days or will it leave a scar for the rest of my life? Well, based on this - you can create bins and throw those items on these bins and see how you can filter down to most affected item to the least affected item.
If those clothes don't look good on you now, it's time to throw them away. If they are not in current's trend, throw them away. If it doesn't make you feel good for even a day, throw it away. If it doesn't compliment your nearby environment of the house, throw it away.
If an item, reminds you of a good or bad memory. It's time to ask yourself, do you really want to remember the bad things that happened to you? Shouldn't all our lives be nothing but happiness? We believe happiness in our life keeps us healthy and lively! If you feel the same, let go of the items that remind you of bad memories. If it provides you happiness or reminds you the struggles you have faced in your life, you may want to keep it.
If the item you want to keep is unique/artifact then I would suggest you to keep it. If it is not, then do let it go. For example, I have an envelope cutter/opener from my university which reminds me of my good old days. I keep it because I use it daily and it reminds me of my good days and bad days every time I pick it up.
