When you decide to declutter a room, you open yourself up to having to make many, many decisions.
Decisions about what to keep.
Decisions about what to let go.
Decisions about storage of items you've decided to keep.
Decision after decision.
And if you're a tad adverse to making decisions, sometimes its just easier to churn.
If you haven't heard of churning, let me explain to you the difference in these two processes. Decluttering is when you remove things you do not need from a place, in order to make it more pleasant and more useful. The number of items in a specific area is usually reduced. Churning on the other hand, does little to reduce the number of possessions in a space as it's simply moving things around to different areas. Decision making avoidance at its best.
Many people have difficulty making decisions around what needs to leave their homes. When I'm working with clients I recommend we set up some "rules" before starting work to help with the letting go process. These rules are individual to each client and specific to their circumstances. Some possible rules for disposal could be:
