I hear from some that they don’t want to declutter everything, but they do have a junk room that they would like to make usable again. Here are some good tips to declutter that junk room.
My favorite of the bunch is tip number two:
2. Don’t organize your clutter, clear it out. This could be by selling, giving away, recycling, or trashing items you no longer need or like. But it may also include reclaiming the things you really love. Just one example: taking that vintage travel poster to be framed so you can display it proudly on your wall is the upside of decluttering.
I bet most of the things in your junk room have been there for years. If that’s the case, it’s unlikely that you need most of the stuff in there. Don’t fall into the just-in-case trap, if you don’t need it now or in the very near future, then send it packing.
