Many people find the task of letting go overwhelming, and we have a couple of suggestions to help. Firstly, Real Simple’s article on “10 Ways to Let Go of Your Stuff” is full of advice and tips that can help you get rid of all that clutter—mostly stuff you’re no longer using—worry free.

Once you’ve made up your mind about what to get rid of, determine the best way to go about it. For things still in good condition, donating or holding a garage sale for the goods could result in a case of one man’s trash being another man’s treasure. For things that are a little too worn out, trash or recycling may be the best option.
Clearing out clutter will give you a great palette for refreshing your home design—and who wouldn’t love that?
