Do you remember the feeling of satisfaction you had the last time you decluttered your wardrobe? Let me spell it out to make sure you remember: you had so many clothes you didn’t need which were preventing you to find or see the clothes you loved + needed.
Well, it’s the same for your life! Decluttering can get you more focused and clear! What can you declutter more of this coming week?
Getting rid of things you don’t need
The first step you can take to simplifying your life is to get rid or donate things you don’t use or need anymore. Getting rid of excess clutter in your home and everywhere else will help reduce your stress and you will have extra space for the things you truly love. Here is the list of things to get you started:
- Nail Polish
- Home Decor
- Kitchen Appliances
- Home Decor
- Old school Records
It’s going to be a lot of hard work but it will be entirely worth it! And I am here to help!
Here are a few epic tips that were shared by my community members:
- “Keeping a bag beside your clothes closet and continue to add to it until it gets full”
- “Composing a capsule wardrobe”. I didn’t know much about this concept so I am really glad that one community member brought it up! Basically, it’s the concept of creating 30 and something pieces of wardrobe per season that defines your style. Click here to know more about this
Limit what you buy
When it comes to buying things, what’s your soft spot? What do you buy even if there’s no room for it? My soft spot is BOOKS! I used to buy any books that I liked: because of how pretty the cover looked, if someone recommended it to me, or if it was somewhat related to a topic that interested me. Crazy right? Especially that I am a slow reader! You can imagine how my book shelves looked haha. Now I make sure that every book I buy is a conscious choice and that I’ve at least done a bit of research and read a few reviews before buying it.
It’s your turn now: what is your soft spot? Whatever it might be, limit what you buy. Don’t buy it unless you really need it or you are planning on replacing it with something else. This will help not build clutter in your home and make life easier for you.
