550 Toss, Sell or Donate? How to Decide What to do with Your Stuff

When decluttering a space, what do you do when you come across something good, but you don’t love it, don’t use it, and wouldn’t buy it again? Some would never get rid of something that is potentially useful. It can be a struggle to know what to do with your stuff!

In today’s episode, Kathi is joined by the ever-effervescent Tonya Kubo as they talk villain origin stories and the clutter quandaries of fancy photo backdrops and chicken diapers. Here are some helpful hints that will help you sort through what to sell, what to donate, and what to toss:

  • Determine what the item is currently worth.
  • Ask how much time you want to invest in getting rid of it.
  • Would someone else enjoy and get use out of that item?

Bottom line: Value your time, value your money, and value the process. You can do this! Need some encouragement? Join us on Facebook in Kathi Lipp’s Clutter Free Academy.

When it comes to your home, peace is possible…

Longing for a place of peace from which you can love others well? The Clutter-Free Home is your room-by-room guide to decluttering, reclaiming, and celebrating every space of your home. 

Let author Kathi Lipp (who once lived a life buried in clutter) walk you through each room of your house to create organizational zones that are not only functional and practical but create places of peace that reflect your personality.  Kathi will help you tackle the four-step process of dedicate, decide, declutter and “do-your-thing” to reveal the home you’ve always dreamed of, and then transform it into a haven that reflects who you truly are meant to be.
