One of my best tips to people who find themselves with too much clutter, is simply to buy less stuff. I suggest to them, that when they go out shopping, to ask themselves if they really need that particular item? Retailers are clever, they ‘tempt’ you with extra goodies, particularly when you are about to check out of the store. How many times, have you gone into a shop, picked up what you need, only to pop one or two items into your bag, items that you probably don’t really need?
I have been guilty of it too, as you are standing their waiting to be served, it’s easy to be tempted. But that’s why they put the goodies there, to reel you in!
