Clutter has a tendency to take up a lot of space. Additionally, clutter can pile up quickly, meaning your house could go from tidy to chaotic in a short period of time. This is especially true if you’re prone to placing sentimental value on items. Once you attach emotion to an object, it’s harder to get rid of. Harder, but not impossible. Don’t end up like one of those homes on Hoarders.
Don’t let clutter take over! Know when to let something go when you no longer have a need for it. Every year or two I try to go through things in storage and in my closet to get rid of. If it no longer has a purpose or doesn’t fit me then I don’t need it. Of course I struggle with a lot of items I don’t want to give up just yet. So I may hold on to it another year or so. If you’re not using the item then ask yourself why should you save it?
