- Make room! See what you can let go of first ~ before people start giving you more. Start with the obvious (trash, recycle, e-waste, broken, never use…)
- After receiving new items, only keep the better version of any two that are similar (I already had a white puffy jacket, now I have two! Which one feels/looks better?)
- Kindly request money go to instead~ a favorite charity or cause; experience or adventure.
- Re-gift! It’s okay if someone else may enjoy it more. Put a bow on it! I keep these near my gift wrap so it’s a one stop shop, ready to go.
These can be applied to birthdays and other gift-involved holidays year round.
Clearing clutter and keeping it that way involves habit shifting. You can do it!
Let me know if you have tried any of these- or have your own favorites to share.
(Though I get so many spam comments I may not see it here ~ you’re always welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org until I get that fixed 😉
Thanks and Happiest of Holidays and New Year!!
