One of the common reasons we find it hard to declutter, is the value we put on all the stuff we have. The emotional attachment is one thing, but the monetary value is another. And we think that getting rid of something means we are throwing away the money we spent on that thing. But what we don’t realize is that we are consuming more resources by keeping everything in.
Less clutter, more money
What do I mean by this? Let’s say you have stuff that you or your family no longer use at all. You feel hesitant to give it away because you don’t want to “waste” what you spent on it. But later on, the stuff you don’t want to give away keeps piling up. And now you will be spending more of your time cleaning or putting items away.
So instead of investing your time on starting up a business, improving your skills or well-being, and doing the things that you love, you are stuck with cleaning your clutter.
And guess what else? There are many ways you can actually earn cash through decluttering. So you would be surprised at how many people out there actually need what you have and are willing to buy second-hand.
