WHERE TO START DECLUTTERING?

Sabtu, 23 Mei 2020

You may want to start declutter your things right now, but you don't know where to starts.






Last year, when I first knew about minimalism and decluttering, the first thing that I got rid of was my clothes. It was so easy for me to declutter my clothes because I don't really have too much stuff and before, I always make groups of my clothes which are group of daily or usually use items and group of I don't really want to use it soon. At the end, the last group is always being the one which I never wore and ended up in donation box.

This year, I declutter my sentimental items. This was huge for me because I have a lot of sentimental items such as my old toys, old notes, girl items, old books and digital memories. It took me 1 day to declutter my toys and girl items, 1 day for books and another 1 day to declutter my digital memories. It's really different rather when I declutter my clothes because I just need around 1 hour to finish it.

I realize it was easy for me to get rid of my clothes at the first place because I'm not too attached to those items. I'm not a person who likes to buy clothes every time, I just buy it once or twice a year and only 1 or 2 pieces. That's why I don't have many clothing items and I'm relieved about it now.

Yes, I'm too attached to my sentimental items because they have lot of memory in it. Next time, I will tell you how I can finally let them go.

In my opinion, when it's your first time to declutter, choose a part that you are not too attached to because it's easier to let them go. It may your books that you haven't read for years, or your make-up tools that you didn't use for few months or already expired. Well, it may vary for every person. Remember, you don't need rush. Good luck!

  1. Betul, sentimental items itu paling sulit untuk dibereskan. Buatku sentimental items itu adalah buku-buku tertentu, surat atau kartu ucapan dari sahabat/keluarga, beberapa barang anakku waktu bayi termasuk beberapa prakarya pertama dia yang kondisinya sebenernya udah layak buang namun akunya menye-menye karena itu hasil pertama dari tangan dia 😂

    1. Ah pasti berat banget kalau sesuatu yang berkaitan dengan anak! Aku bisa kebayang sih soalnya kartu ucapan ulang tahun yang nggak jelas aja pernah aku simpan 😆
      Mungkin prakarya anak cici bisa di-digitalize aja? Biar lebih awet dan nggak kemakan usia. Kalau bentuk fisik gitu kan lama-lama bisa pudar. Semoga berkenan 🙏
