Decluttering Is Making Decisions
"Flip-flopping" between keeping or tossing things?
Can't decide what to do with your stuff? Are you tired of an item but you may have some use for it at a later date?
Are you thinking that maybe someone else may use it at some point?
Maybe it will come back in style?
Decluttering can actually train you to make decisions more easily. I used this technique with a client and it worked like a charm.
Set aside your favorites that you know for sure you want to keep.
Set aside the ones that are not in good shape, faded or worn out.
Now you are left with the "flip-flop" pile, the "I just don't know". This is the unsettling pile.
Put these items in a bag, box or basket and set them aside for 2 weeks. No peeking!
Ask yourself the following question when you look through these sweaters after the two weeks:
Did I even think of wearing any one of them?
Do I even remember what is in the bag?
Did I get along fine without them?
Wouldn't I rather make room for something new by tossing or donating them?
Why did I even think I wanted to save this?
As you go along your declutter projects this technique will actually take less time. I promise you.
You will no longer want to keep "maybe" piles around.
You will want to get right to the tossing.
You will develop a keener sense and a quicker sense about what to keep and what to toss.
