“I don’t want my kids to have to deal with all my crap!”
This is one of the reasons for decluttering I hear all the time from my students.
A lifetime of possessions (treasures?) can occupy a LOT of space! Some people call this Swedish Death Cleaning
And while I love this reason, here’s an even more compelling way to think about it.
How about decluttering to be a good example right now?
You can be an example for others (your kids?) or even yourself.
When you use this reason, not only do you spare your family the burden of dealing with your things, but you also model the habit of letting go.
Watch this video for ideas on how to model the letting go process and why this is good for you and others.
I recommend you start a binder where you can keep all of these worksheets along with any of the other printables you download or purchase from the Early Bird Mom shop.
