Learning how to let go or get rid of something is never easy. However, the concept of decluttering helps us to get rid of things that maybe weren’t allowing us to let go. So let me help you start this spring on the right foot.
The easiest places to begin are the one’s we can’t see inside of. I’m talking about the clutter that fills our closets, drawers, and cabinets.
Declutter unnecessary items you don’t need and you’ll be surprised at how much easier it is to let go. Ask: "Why am I keeping this? Is it currently serving me a purpose?"
When it comes to closets I live by the year rule. Besides those fancy cocktail dresses, if you haven’t been able to wear something in over a year, it’s time to let it go. I know you are planning on slimming down to fit back into those high school jeans but why???
Chances are you don’t need it and it’s just taking up space.
Trust me, you won’t need those old documents from past jobs or even older school projects.
You’ll never need to wear that disco pink glitter eyeshadow ever again.
Get your butt to Target and go by a new one. You might as well think about it as a facelift for your bathroom.
Keep one for memory sake, toss the rest.
This includes those chargers and broken iPhone cords you were keeping around just in case.
Like that Mickey Mouse shaped toaster you go in an office white elephant game. Let. It. Go.
Use them as statement decorative pieces.
Think things that remind you of a certain time and place. Give you good feelings.
These are simple pieces with classic silhouettes. Items you can always rely on to make you feel confident in your own skin.
So, in the great words of Queen Elsa, “Let it go.” What items will you be getting rid of?
