“Clutter is physical proof of our abundance.” Donna says. “If you have clutter, you’re richer than you think, especially when you can turn that clutter into cash.”
So, how do you turn clutter into cash? Donna explains…
Declutter in small steps
Keep from getting overwhelmed by decluttering one drawer, one shelf or other small space at a time. Or set a timer for 15-30 minutes. If you feel like working longer, you can. But even just 15 minutes a day adds up to seven hours a month. You can get a lot of decluttering done in seven hours.
Keep or toss?
That is the question. Rather than trying to figure out what to get rid of, select the items you definitely want to keep – the things you love and use and would not want to be without. Donate or sell the rest.
Ask the important questions
Is it more important to me to keep this item or to have the space it occupies? What if you were moving? Would it be worth packing and unpacking it? And the big question: Would I buy this today? If no, let it go.
