This week on the JTO podcast I answer a listener question – how do you figure out the balance between decluttering things you already have and the cost of going out and buying it again if you need it.
It is a good question and one that a lot of people need help answering in order to move forward in their decluttering efforts.
I am interested to know what you think about the balance – and how you measure it – drop me a line and let me know.
Key Takeaways To Tune In For:
- [03:40] When you are in the process of decluttering, you should not hesitate to get rid of the following items: things you don’t want anymore, things that are not useful anymore, things that are broken, and anything you won’t be able to fix.
- [08:47[ Saving items because they might be useful later on become trash if you don’t pass them along to someone who could use them right now.
- [12:44] if you have a large collection of items, you need to decide how much is it worth to keep.
- [17:49] If you are keeping something like extra kitchen tiles, or parts to repair something, it’s important to think about how much it would cost for you to replace, and how easy it is to get a new one.
- [19:54] it’s ok to have empty space in your home,. You do not need to fill every single crevice with stuff.
