21-April-2018. Stumbled across this article about swedish death cleaning. Question I must ask myself on a daily basis – “Will Anyone be Happier if I Save This?”
“That note your crush passed you in middle school isn’t going to mean anything to anyone other than you. One of the important questions Magnusson poses in her book is: Will anyone be happier if I save this? It’s a good way to frame the inner monologue debate that will go on in your mind as you start to declutter.”
Don’t wait until your deathbed.
Know where to start.
It’s OK to finally regift those unused presents.
Get others involved.
Keep the keepsakes – but make them manageable.
Slow and steady wins the race.
