Set Aside the ‘Maybes’ When Decluttering

When considering what to keep, donate or trash, you will come across stuff that isn’t useful right now, but you think you might need or use one day. These in-between items can slow down the decision-making in your decluttering process, or derail it altogether. The solution? Create a “Maybe” box, the Zen Habits blog suggests, put the questionable items inside and store it in an out-of-the-way place for six months. Then, revisit the box. Most people find a box full of stuff they never needed, and can donate immediately.
