Over time we tend to accumulate things, from souvenirs we bought from that trip abroad to important documents we somehow still leave lying around… cluttering our spaces is part of what we do, but then comes the time where you’re just tired of it all. Once you decide to ‘spring clean’ your home, another question arises: how do you know if you should indeed store that stuff or if it’s worth having it around?
The worst culprit is things we consider to have sentimental value. It’s always very difficult to get rid of something like that, so storing them is usually the right thing to do. Still, while objects might be important to you, it still doesn’t mean you should keep them around. A storage area outside your home, like a lockup garage, is ideal, because you’ll still be in possession of the things you love while not having them hinder you in your everyday life.
Frequency of Use
While you might love that beautiful dress you bought a while ago, it might just be taking space in your closet if you don’t use it. By keeping it stored, you can still come back to it when you feel like it, without having to throw it away. To have a clutter-free environment you need to make space for the things that really matter and that you use frequently, otherwise you’re surrounding yourself with things you have no use for. If you don’t like something, it’s better to take it out of the house – and if you don’t want to get rid of it forever, store it!
How Much is it Worth to You?
Because we tend to hold on to so many things during our lives, it’s necessary that you think about whether they truly mean something to you right now. Another way to put this question is: do you need it? Regardless of how much it cost, you shouldn’t keep anything around if you no longer find any value in it.
If you’re like most people, however, you’ll always doubt yourself and think that you’ll probably use that piece of clothing again in your life, which means you can always store it and come back later to it. Who knows, maybe the next time you’ll see it you’ll fall in love all over again!
