“Clutter is postponed decisions.”
– Barbara Hemphill
The Trilogy – Part III
Now that you have packed away your worldly possessions, the next step is to De-clutter. Think of this process as a head-start or “pre-packing”, which you will eventually need to do anyway.
This is the time to re-evaluate what to keep and not to keep. Many of us are in the habit of collecting an astonishing quantity of “stuff” over the years. There are several types of items to remove when preparing to stage and sell your house.
- Items we haven’t used in a long time like that piece of excersize equipment sitting in the corner of the room or the violin that you told yourself you wanted to learn to play… 12 years ago.
- Items we have forgotten we even had, like the banana protector sitting at the back of a kitchen cupboard or that box of pens with your old office address on them that you can’t use anymore.
- Items we no longer need like excess pieces of furniture, clothing that hasn’t fit for 4 years, kid’s toys, or pet toys that no longer resemble what they actually are.
