Getting rid of your unnecessary belongings is tough, but it's even harder when there are memories attached to them. If you're trying to pare down, but can't quite say goodbye to some things you know you don't need, a "limbo box" can help.
In this video from the Clean My Space YouTube channel, Melissa Maker shares four of her favourite decluttering tips, including a way to ease the pain of letting go. Take the items you're attached to and place them in a box, then hide them away as if you're getting rid of them. Try to keep them out of sight, and if you can store them at someone else's place it's even better. After some time passes, you'll realise you're just fine without them, and it will be easier to say goodbye once and for all. Or maybe one or two of the items might still feel too valuable to you, and you'll know for certain they're worth keeping.
