Keeping your living space neat
After you finish decluttering your home, it is
important to think about how you will keep your
living space neat. Make it as easy as possible so
that you will not be tempted to fall back into your
old habits. Do you always throw your dirty laundry
in a corner of your bedroom? Put your laundry
basket in the exact same spot! Are you often
guilty of impulse buying? Avoid visiting the mall
too often and make sure you write down a
shopping list before you go. Start asking yourself
every time you want to buy something “Do I really
need it?”. You can even put a little note with this
question into your wallet to remind yourself.
TIP: Many companies nowadays offer the option to opt out from receiving physical letters and brochures. In addition, you can put up a “No junk mail” sticker besides your mailbox. This will help reduce the paperwork.
