Skills to Help You De-Clutter

When I think about de-cluttering, the first question I ask myself is what do I really need and love and want?  This sounds easy, but it can become tricky.

It gets more complex when we have to make decisions about letting go of what we have had for a long time that is dear to us. For example, it could be albums, pictures, paper files, china, and dishes from the family, and special books. How do you decide when you like all those things, they make you happy, and you want to keep them?

 Well, you can hide them in the basement or get a storage space and that will spare you those tough and sometimes emotional decisions. However, If you decide to go through some temporary discomfort and soul searching, the exercise of downsizing can bring clarity to you about what is really important to you and speaks to your values.

Here are 3 questions and answers to begin the process.
•What is one of a kind or irreplaceable? For me, it's articles I've written, it's materials that I've created. Solutions are to take pictures of them or transfer them electronically. If it is irreplaceable within the family, I can offer it to a family member.
•What do l love using or seeing in my home? What brings me a great memory or puts a smile on my face? Those stay. 
•What do I love but have some negative or painful memories attached to it? Those I give to someone who also loves it and will enjoy it. Then I know where it is. 

This process of discarding helps us to focus on what's most important, and when we declutter our space, we also declutter our mind. It gives us freedom.
