Overwhelmed by clutter and can’t seem to get motivated to declutter ALL your clutter piles?
Here’s a Decluttering Club Tip:
Always use BAGS when you are decluttering your home… NOT boxes.
There’s a very simple reason why bags work SO much better when decluttering any room in your home.
When you’re uncluttering your home (or Decluttering… or de-JUNKING), it’s important to retrain your brain so you don’t feel SO darn overwhelmed by all the clutter around you.
There’s a reason all that clutter built up in the first place, right?
In order to change our behavior WITHOUT feeling overwhelmed, we have to do things differently and pretty much “trick” our brain into wanting to declutter.
One of the most important things you can do is to ONLY declutter with BAGS and NEVER with BOXES.
There’s a very simple reason why… and it has to do with how your brain subconsciously works.
It’s also one of the main reasons why Decluttering Challenges, like the 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge, work so well for people when they never could find success with other decluttering programs.
It’s all in the BAGS, my friend!
Think for a moment what things in BAGS mean to you vs what things in BOXES mean to you.
For most people bags full of stuff = TRASH.
Boxes = storage or gifts (or Amazon deliveries ha!)
So, when deciding the whole bags vs boxes decluttering strategy – use BAGS.
Bags mean: GET RID OF IT
while boxes mean: KEEP IT
Decluttering is all about getting RID of stuff.
Don’t let your brain sabotage your decluttering efforts because your brain doesn’t feel comfortable getting rid of those things you pack up.
Put it all in BAGS… trash bags are your best bet.
Trash bags = TRASH.
Your brain is already trained to throw bags of trash away.
