How to Efficiently Declutter Sentimental Items

You are most certainly not alone. Tackling sentimental items is one of the hardest parts of the decluttering process.

We are going to let you into a secret.... we are sentimental too! And we want to make it 100% clear right from the start that this is not designed in any way to convince you to part with truly special memories and things from the past. We all have sentimental, priceless things that need to stay around in our lives for ever. But, many of us also have a few too many. This course is all about choosing QUALITY OVER QUANTITY so you can enjoy your sentimental items rather than feel overwhelmed by them.

If you are one of those people that just feels completely STUCK when it comes to sentimental items, this course is just for you. We know only too well how hard sentimental stuff is to declutter. If you've been part of our community for a while, you will know we always recommend leaving sentimental items till last on your decluttering journey. That's because it's tough, emotional stuff and you need a helping hand to guide you through.

If this is sounding familiar, read on...

  • Do you have boxes and boxes of sentimental stuff that you are keeping for a rainy day project 
  • Are you afraid that letting go of an item means you let go of memories too?
