Many people tend to dread decluttering and getting organized, even if their stuff is giving them grief. I get it. It can be overwhelming for many. And, whatever the job may be, it’s work—physical and emotional. I regularly get asked, “You do this every day?” My response, “Pretty much, and I love it.”
I regularly hear, “I don’t want to keep it, but I don’t know what to do with it.” Beneath this is a whole lot of guilt in letting go of unnecessary and dated items for fear of ending up in a landfill. I love that my clients care – and get excited when I can reassure them that I can find an outlet for their clutter.
When working with families, parents regularly ask me how they can teach their children to willfully get rid of stuff. This is typically followed by guilty admissions of purging toys on the sly. Out of sight, out of mind – right? Don’t worry, no judgment– we’ve ALL been there!
