Enough’s enough. All the signs are telling you that you NEED to declutter and you’d love to make a start. The problem is, it’s not all ‘clutter’. Yours is a mixture of things that you don’t need and things that you do. In amongst it are a great many treasures and the only person who knows which of them are truly important to you is YOU.
People often fear that ‘decluttering’ will mean getting rid of stuff that they love. They know they have permission to hold on to obvious heirlooms like family jewellery, however mostly it’s the other things – the belongings with no obvious financial value but huge sentimental importance – that they feel under pressure to let go.
