Today’s Tip of the Week- Would I Rebuy This?
Do you need help with clutter and deciding what to keep or eliminate? We’ve all been there. For many people, decluttering brings up emotions like guilt or fear that can cloud your judgment when deciding whether an item is helpful in our lives. We tend to hold onto things because of the memories they evoke, even if they no longer serve a practical purpose.
Asking yourself, “Would I rebuy this today if I had the option?” forces you to confront the practicality of the item and takes the focus away from the past, and helps you evaluate the item’s true worth in the present.
I encourage you to apply this question to your own decluttering journey. It’s a powerful tool for cutting through the emotional clutter and making practical decisions.
Remember, decluttering is not about getting rid of everything. It’s about creating a space that supports and reflects your current lifestyle. By asking this question, you can ensure that your items are truly valuable and useful to you.
