Sort Out Sunday: What Are the “What If’s” And How To Kill Them

14 Jan

 

Many times when I ask a client why they have kept an item or items, the answer starts with “What if”. It doesnt’ matter what the item is, the answer starts out the same: What if I need _______ one day? What if I need ___ just in case? What if I run out of___?

Sometimes it generational. Sometimes its status. Sometimes its anxiety.e

It a fine line between keeping SUPPLIES and hoarding forks and plates. LOL In my opinion you should have supplies/extras of things that WILL be used. SO things like Paper towels and Toilet paper are a yes. Because you continuously use them. Saving things for a what if isnt good. If your underwear drawer can’t close, time to get rid of enough underwear to close the drawer. A package of Christmas themed paper plates are fine because you are going to use them at Christmas!

I heard another organizer say only keep what reflects who you are today! Take the  fear out of it. Fear breeds the saving for what if or just in case.
