Step 3: Easiest Way To Organise Your Stuff
As the popular Minimalists say; the easiest way to organise your stuff is to get rid of it! Just imagine moving into your new home where you don’t have an overwhelming number of boxes to unpack, where the keepsakes you treasure take pride of place and aren’t lost in a sea of clutter and everything you own, you actually take great pleasure in.
Our tip: If in doubt – throw it out! A good idea is to prepare a carton of goods for your chosen charity and to dispose of all recyclable goods responsibly.
Decluttering isn’t just being prepared to walk away from what’s been collected over a number of years, it’s about walking towards an easier and simpler and most importantly, a more enjoyable life.
