When decluttering your home, there will be things that are sentimental and you want to keep, but don't know what to do with. Here are some tips to help you strategically organize your sentimental items without sacrificing space:
Box It Up
If you're on the fence about sentimental items, place the objects into a storage container to revisit in six months. This will keep you from making a rushed decision and getting rid of something you want to keep.
Consider displaying meaningful items in specially designed shadow boxes or frames. This is a creative way to keep your sentimental clutter while also adding a stylish touch to your space.
Once they have been uploaded, you will no longer have to worry about loss or damage to your photos, and you will be able to easily share them with friends and family. If you have more photos than you do time, there are companies and individuals who will scan and sort them for you for a reasonable fee.
Before you decide to keep something, ask yourself the following questions:
- Why am I keeping this?
- Could someone else make better use of it?
- Would a picture of it be enough?
- Can I still remember the memory without the object?
Ask for Help
If the thought of decluttering or organizing your home is overwhelming you, consider hiring a professional organizer or asking a trusted relative or friend to help you through the process.
