Decluttering Tips

I know that everyone will feel reluctant when throwing things away. I have come up with the following solutions for your reference:

Because of nostalgia – taking pictures.

Because of fear of waste – resale and cash out.

Because I think it will be useful – give him a maximum of 3 months observation period.

Because of low frequency use – try to rent when needed, or buy second hand and resell.

Because there are too many – try to calculate the most comfortable rolling inventory value and balance purchasing energy, money, and storage costs.

Regarding taking photos as souvenirs, you can also combine your decluttering work with our previous article on How to Declutter Pictures.
