Get Rid Of Clutter With One Simple Hack
Weed out things you no longer need without hassle
Whether you’re on your journey to becoming a minimalist or you just want to get rid of some things you’ve outgrown, decluttering is a difficult process to start—especially if you have a tendency to hold on to a lot of things.
If you’re one of those people who find letting go of possessions emotionally draining, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus of The Minimalists have one spring cleaning guideline that is easy enough to follow and it is called The 90/90 Rule.
The way it works is that you pick any random item from your pile and ask yourself—have you used that item in the last 90 days? If you haven’t, will you use it in the next 90? If you answered no to both questions, then it’s high time for you to pass it along.
While it may not be applicable to all the things you have at home—you never know when you’re going to need repair tools, fancy China or spare bedding—it is still a handy hack when clearing out personal belongings like clothes, makeup and books.
You can also bend the rules to fit your lifestyle; maybe your rule isn’t 90 days but instead it’s 120 or even three months. Whatever time frame you decide on, make sure you’re honest if a material possession no longer brings you joy so you can achieve a more meaningful life.
