Next, try to avoid diving head-first into the clearing out process. While it’s tempting to get stuck in, you’ll soon be surrounded by mess which will inevitably be overwhelming and discouraging.
Instead, make sure you take a methodical approach, tackling items category by category. Start with the belongings that are easiest to discard, such as clothes, shoes, books and CDs, before moving onto more sentimental items such as ornaments and keepsakes. Go through item by item, and be honest about whether you really need it.We’re all guilty of holding on to belongings that we don’t need or want any more, and now is a great time to part ways.
