It’s easy for some people to let go of items with sentimental value. But, others hold on to items knowing they have no real value.
What are some of your best excuses for holding onto clutter?
• I might need it someday?
• I will fit into this again?
• It was a gift?
• I’m saving it to give as a gift?
Below is a list of some of the things that people are at peace parting with.
• Old notes on small pieces of paper
• Old shopping receipts and unneeded invoices
• Recipes cut out from magazines but never used
• Cookbooks on the shelf that are no longer in use
• Outdated cosmetics and toiletry items
• Old pieces of wrapping paper being saved to use again
• Letters and birthday cards that don’t mean much anymore
• Gifts received and kept due to guilt rather than pleasure
• Scrapbooking supplies that haven’t been used in ages
• Desk clutter; too many pens, paper scraps, highlighters
• Clothing that’s gone out of fashion
• Clothing that doesn’t fit anymore
If you have items that are just taking up space, give yourself the guilt-free incentive to get rid of them, like others do.
