It can be painful to part with certain items, but let’s be honest. You do not need six waffle makers. Clutter can accumulate when we are hesitant to get rid of things that we no longer need or have a use for. If you feel like you have too much stuff, you will have to get rid of some of it for your own sanity. Items that do not have sentimental value, a current use, or make you genuinely happy have got to go! You have to be honest with yourself when evaluating your stuff. Don’t lie to yourself about how much enjoyment you get out of something that has sat at the back of the closet for months, or even years! It can be hard to eliminate some of your possessions, but it is worth it. Donate your unwanted goods to a thrift store for an easy way to feel good about what you are doing.

If you find that you just do not have space for your things, even after following the steps above, you may want to look into getting some new containers. These can be whatever you think would fit the best! You can use baskets, chests, or even something else to store your stuff. Nothing beats upgrading your current cabinets into new ones. Cleaning your clutter is a great opportunity to bring your storage and style to the next level with some new cabinets.
