I have removed emotions from my decluttering process, not because I don't have emotions, but because I do! I can't use emotions to declutter, so I stick with my fact and instinct based ways of dealing with things. One of the biggest things that brings up lots of emotions is being asked (or asking myself) WHY? Why didn't I take care of this before instead of letting it get so bad?Why did I get this?Why am I this way?

390: Questions About Toys, Finding Places, and Decluttering

I'm answering a few questions that were asked over at AskDanaKWhite.com. Question 1: My question is on the subject of toys. How do I go about starting (outside of your normal questions)? Like where do I start? My son is 3. Do I pick what to keep or does he? (We have tons of Hot Wheels, monster trucks, and small tractors.) How do I decide what to keep/donate? Is there a limit to how many of each?! HELP! Thank you!Question 2: I am just starting my decluttering adventure. How do I create a home for items that I don't already have a place for?Question 3: What do you do with items that you know you would have (Q2) but are not sure where you would look for that item? My "look for first" place changes. What if you haven't had a look for this item first space yet? Part 2 of this question: What do you do for hope chest and heirloom items? I am saving for a home of my own. I have items that I would need for my future home. Right now I am living with a roommate and using her stuff (per her request as she owns the place that I am living). I have some of the same items i.e. dishes, furniture that I needed with different roommates and apartments in the past. When I have my own place will need these items again. How do I declutter items that I will still need when I'm wanting to declutter what I have and make it more manageable? My booksWant to be a patron of the show?

388: Decluttering that Extra Difficult Spot or Category of Stuff

We all have (at least) one category of stuff that's extra hard to declutter. I'm addressing that today, inspired by this email:  I am a teacher who, due to life circumstances, is leaving the profession shortly before I could be considered early retired. I am working part-time as a substitute teacher because I can not seem to let go entirely. My question for you is: how do I let go of all the teaching resources I have accumulated and created over the last twenty-plus years? As a substitute teacher, I would realistically only need some of the materials, but not 80 boxes worth. How did you deal with the process of letting go of your professional materials? I have been stuck with this issue for a long time. I have other clutter issues, but at the moment, the professional materials are one area I would like to conquer soon. My booksWant to be a patron of the show?

We (me especially, but also so many of my listeners) are great at theorizing. At predicting. At being super logical. We're intelligent people.But when we theorize about house stuff like home maintenance and decluttering, putting our theories into practice isn't so fun, so we tend to keep theorizing some more. But if we don't move the theories into reality, the house never actually improves. Reality is the only place where things actually happen.

385: Clutter and My Hero Complex

I've realized that a lot of the things I held onto "just in case" were things I envisioned saving the day. Won't I be glad I had that? Won't everyone ooh and aah if I end up already having the very thing we needed in that dire situation that could possibly happen one day? I've found this to be common in a lot of us who struggle with clutter. We like dramatic stories and we love to be the hero in those dramatic stories. But when we keep so much stuff that we can't actually find the thing when we finally need it, heroism turns into a hero complex.Mentioned in this episode:We're hiring!
