Step 1: Know What You Want to Change
Clean Your Home
Set a goal for what you want to clean. Is it one room, one closet, or your whole house? Ask yourself why you have so much. Are you trying to hide something painful? Knowing why you have so much clutter could help you avoid buying more stuff in the future.
Clean Your Mind
Be willing to forgive yourself for getting rid of old gifts or items that you bought (or that someone bought for you). People care about you and they would rather have you be happy than have you grudgingly keep all the presents that you never used.
