We all have many things. As I mentioned in the past, you need to shrink your belongings at some point in your life. Waiting until you need it is not a good approach.
Don’t wait until it comes, as it is inevitable that you need to shrink your belongings at some point. Positively, if you start before you need it, you may not have physical or mental abilities to accomplish your job. You want to make a decision for your own things, you don’t want others to make them for you.
The good approach is to be active as described above. There are steps that can be taken as you proceed with your daily activities to reduce your belongings. Mindfulness or recognition of your surroundings is the key to eliminating excess in your living space.
Example of mindfulness
Be careful of the number of clothes you have, especially one type of clothes, as you are looking for something in your closet. For example, do you have some pairs of black pants to fit? Or isn’t it compatible? It is enough to have two pairs or three black pants.
Put the basket near the closet or nearby. If you find an unpleasant clothing that doesn’t fit your body, or if you don’t like it, put it in the basket. When the basket is full, donate to your favorite charity.
If you are preparing for a meal and looking for a cooking utensils, if you find some of the same thing, throw away the extra. What I mean to throw away is a donation if it is in good condition. Or, if not, put it in the recycling bin and recycle it is an option for you.
Personal care items can make the storage area very quickly overcrowded if you do not notice the content. In the morning, be careful of the number of shampoos that occupy the space in the cabinet or shower while preparing for the day. Sometimes I start using the product and judge that I don’t like it, so I buy another product to try it. What you stop using is to occupy a valuable storage space. When replacing things that have not worked, use one rule to discard the rules that did not work to release the space.
This is the basis for reducing your belongings every day. Being careful or recognizing your surroundings is very useful to make your belongings proportional to your living space. When you reduce your belongings, when you need it, you don’t do that much to determine their fate.
