1. “I need to find the perfect recipient for everything I’m getting rid of.” It’s easier to part with things when you know you are giving them to someone who can use them, but don’t let this kind intention become a source of clutter in itself.
2. “I can’t get rid of anything that I might possibly need one day.” Do you have gigantic stores of things like rubber bands or ketchup packets? How many coffee mugs does one family use?
3. “I might get that gizmo fixed.” Face it. If you’ve had something for more than six months and it’s still not repaired, it’s clutter.
4. “I might learn how to use that gizmo.” Again, face it. If you’ve had a gizmo on the shelf for a year and you’ve never used it to make gelato or label a sugar jar, it’s clutter.
