How much of your clutter is the result of impulse purchases?

Clearing your clutter is just one part of living clutter-free.

It’s equally important to stop bringing stuff into your home unnecessarily.

If you have trouble resisting pretty, shiny things, ask yourself the questions posed in this video next time you’re tempted.

  • Tony

    Don’t take more money than I need to the shops .. no extra cash = no unneeded clutter

  • gill

    Ask: Do I need this or want it. If I want it, why do I want it ?
    If it is for some emotional reason (sad/happy/lonely/peer pressure) I ask “What better way can I meet that need?”

    • That’s great, Gill. Have you noticed yourself buying less (and less stuff that would end up as clutter) since you started doing that? Or have you always done it?
