504: Back to Basics:
Why You Might Want to Get Rid of Half of Your Stuff
Kathi and Roger Lipp are here with helpful decluttering and downsizing tips based on personal experience. This power couple has gotten rid of HALF of their stuff TWICE.
Now you may be thinking, “Kathi! That’s crazy! I can’t get rid of half of my stuff!” The great news is that you don’t have to. Let Kathi and Roger break down the helpful strategies they learned when purging their living space.
Let’s talk about categories. Maybe you have a lot of jewelry. Make your goal to sort through that jewelry and get rid of the half you don’t wear, like, or find uncomfortable.
How do you make a decision when you have too much of a category?
Kathi suggests picking up each item and considering how much you actually like it, and if you have something similar that you like better? Get rid of those repeat items that no longer serve you.
Having too many choices day to day eliminates how much we value the things we have. And giving away your stuff could help bless people with the things they need. Keep what you love and get rid of the rest. You don’t need the Tupperware you lost the lid to.
