Starting decluttering without making proper planning

Planning is necessary for every aspect of our life. This is especially helpful in the case of decluttering. Before cleaning a particular area, find out what you need to do. As you are going to move out some items, initially where you are going to put them should be the first concern. There is no best idea for decluttering. Whatever way helps you the most is the best way to do so.

Procrastinating on giving away

If you are emotionally attached to your decluttered items or having a hard time giving them away, chances are you are not going to get rid of them soon. This is one of the biggest mistakes people make when they have to declutter. If you don’t move the unnecessary item permanently from the storage, you will never have as clean a space.

Don’t try to declutter other people’s stuff

Oftentimes we try to help other people declutter their stuff. This is wrong in many ways. First, you don’t know about their products, so you might see things that they like. And secondly, this is solely their responsibility to move things that are not needed right at this moment. Let them decide what to keep or throughout.
