Here are some interesting notes I took:
- Evaluate the value of every possession based on what it can do for you, not just because you can own it.
- If you’re overwhelmed by the amount of clutter you have in a given space, take a small pile to a cleaner space and start decluttering it.
- The more you declutter and get organized, the more time you’ll have to spend with your family.
- If you’re tired of the decluttering work, think about its future payoff.
- Everyone can find 10 minutes a day to declutter.
- Living simply doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself from anything.
- Do you forget the person if you declutter his/her gift?
- To stay focused, you must connect your decluttering efforts to the big picture of what you want your life to be.
- The Ridiculous Memory technique for overcoming the “What If?” scenario. (Minute 16)
- 30-Day Challenge: Don’t buy anything except for absolute necessities like food. The results will shock you!
- It usually gets a little worse before it gets better.
- Designate a home for every item you own, and when the designated space is full ask yourself which item you like the least, then get rid of it.
- Imagine that awesome feeling when you step into a hotel room to spend a nice vacation, you can make that in your own house by just decluttering. It’s the stuff or that feeling…your choice!
