Eliminate the “just in case” mindset

Perhaps you hold onto items because you’re hoping you’ll find a use for them again. These items can be high school clothes, an old musical instrument you haven’t touched in years or gifts you feel guilty discarding. Whatever the reason, if the item has been sitting ignored for months or even years, it’s time to let it go.

It’s not the end of the world

Eliminating items you think you might need someday can be scary, but it’s not the end of the world because if you do need a similar item in the future, you can borrow or buy it. It’s important to remember that if you haven’t seen a need for it recently, you probably won’t anytime soon either.

Declutter often

Breaking the habit of holding onto items you don’t need starts with decluttering often and systematically.
