You may think that this is impossible. One tip to declutter my entire life? It can’t be! But we think we’ve found the number one tip to organise your belongings and make you feel happier and calmer about ‘stuff’. So what is it? Go DIGITAL. Let me explain…
Ban the postie
Try to convert your bills, bank statements and subscriptions to digital form – in this day and age you should be able to receive zero (or very close to zero!) paper mail. This will reduce the amount of sorting through papers and filing you have to do, and cut down on stored documents.
Ditch the prints
We’ve all done it in the past – we get home from a fantastic adventure all excited and go straight to the newsagency to print off an album of holiday snaps. And then this album inevitably sits on a bookshelf getting dusty for the next 5 years until it gets stored away in a box somewhere never to be seen again. So ditch the prints! Keep backups of all your digital photos in at least 2 digital locations, but leave it at that. If you want to display certain special photographs on the wall or in frames then go for it! But leave the albums for your Facebook profile.
