Sorry about the delay in today’s post. I think I caused to problem by forgetting to give the page a title. Alls fixed now.
Doodle asked yesterday…
“If someone came to you for help, what 3 top tips would you give them to get them started (decluttering) and how would you sell the knock on benefits of a de-cluttered life to others in less than three sentences?”
Here are my answers…
- Start with the easiest stuff to part with first and don’t be in a hurry. Take your time and make it easy on yourself. Be satisfied in knowing the stuff is heading out the door and it doesn’t need to be immediately obvious.
- Set your disposal methods in place before you begin. Find a charity nearby you can donate to and brush up on selling methods that work for you.
- Stop the flow of stuff coming in.
How to sell the knock on benefits…
Freeing up your space, time and effort is enough on its own but being free from the consumer rat race is one of the best knock on effect of decluttering that I can think of. The money saved to go towards things that really matter.
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter something hiding behind something. Behind a door for instance.
Eco Tip for the Day
Share and loan with family and friends things not don’t use often enough to own/store. (Spices, tools, kitchen gadgets…)
