As I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day, I stumbled across a post about things no one over 30 needs in their home. As I read this list of 10 things no one needs at home, I realized I’m guilty of still having a few of these! And yes, I’m over the age of 30!
Let me start by saying… I wish I was a minimalist. I’ve said that numerous times in my life. Honestly, I tend to hold on to things WAY longer than I should. Another issue I have is being sentimental. If someone gave me something, I have a hard time letting go of it. Even if I rarely or never use it!
I always have the best of intentions when it comes to decluttering though. And when I do get that burst of motivation, I always feel super accomplished. Yet, a few months down the road and I still feel overwhelmed by STUFF!
Things No One Needs At Home
So as I read this list of things no one needs at home on Apartment Therapy.com, I realized I am in major need of another declutter session. Maybe I’ll make time to do that this weekend? Or maybe not! I have to be in the right mood… that’s not just me, right?
I will say when it comes to decluttering… I usually try to tackle it all at once. And that can be very overwhelming! At one point, a friend of mine recommended “Declutter Like A Mother,” on Facebook. Her approach is really doable! She breaks it down in a way where you don’t get overwhelmed because you do a little at a time. And she really walks you through each room. Obviously, everyone’s homes are a little different, but for the most part, her method is effective if you can stick with it!
Personally, I do know that if I set my mind to it, and break it into chunks, I can do it too. I just have to set aside the time. It’s not that I don’t have the time… it’s just that when I do, decluttering ISN’T what I want to do necessarily. But then I think about what it’ll be like if I sell my house and have to move. UGH! I have WAY too much stuff and don’t want to have to pack it all up. Not that I’m moving anytime soon, but just puts things in perspective.
So enough about that… now on to the list of things no one needs at home, according to Apartment Therapy.com
