Make It Easier To Get Rid Of Your Clutter By Giving Up Hope

A cluttered home gives you less space to work, play and relax, but getting rid of it is often easier said than done. Sometimes the trick to finally parting ways with your clutter is letting go of the “what ifs”.

You probably have a few things in your home that, deep down, you know is something you’ll probably never use again. So why do you keep it? Adrienne Breaux at Apartment Therapy suggests there is one big reason why most people hold on to clutter:

You’re hoping you’ll use something again. In other words, you’re keeping things just in case.

Obviously there are some things that fit this description you don’t want to get rid of — emergency supplies, most tools, etc. — but a lot of things that you keep around with the hope of future use will just continue to sit there, cluttering up your home. There’s a big difference between “I think I’ll need that again someday” and “I hope I’ll need that again someday.” Be honest with yourself and start moving forward with your decluttering campaign.
