Chances are that you have a good idea of the kind of gifts to expect from friends and family members. And don’t forget about the new stuff you will be buying during this shopping season.
If you have not touched or used something for over a year, you probably will never get to use them. Get rid of these items to make space for the things you and your family need.
When decluttering, create three piles; - Keep - Donate/Sell - Trash
By focusing on one room/space/category at a time, you can do a more thorough job than someone looking to declutter everything at once.
As life happens, you will find that something you loved two years ago is no longer attractive. Instead of keeping the old stuff, find out if you can make some money by selling them or donating it to your friends and family members.
Do not keep the items you have sorted for donation and trash inside the house. You may be tempted to dig back in to get that particular supply you hope to use one day. Get rid of these items as soon as possible.
Decluttering is a time-consuming process. At this time of the year, you are also thinking of how to prepare for the Christmas holiday. So get your family involved.
