declutter unfinished things

Will you really finish it?

declutter unfinished thingsAre there books you mean to finish? Can you even remember the plot? Some books are worth reselling on Amazon but you can usually find most anything you want in a charity shop for £1 or less. If it’s not been read, chances are it won’t get read – ditch it.

Now is the time to say goodbye to those things you started and that make you feel bad for not finishing them.

This will make room for something you can actually finish!

Don’t choose anything that has a big resale value, get rid of the rubbish first so you have space to think about more important things.

Choose things that nag you to get them finished.

Some likely candidates are:

  • Books and magazines
  • Moisturiser that didn’t quite suit you
  • Bottle of liqueur too nasty to drink or cook with
  • Craft projects
  • Jigsaws
  • To do lists
  • Paintings and drawings

Ask yourself:

  • Do I like it?
  • Would I use it if it was finished?
  • What is it’s hassle factor to finish?

Sometimes it’s good to give someone else a chance at finishing the thing you started. There truly are some people who would be really happy to find a couple of square feet of patchwork in a car boot sale or charity shop.

Of course, if you really are going to finish something, today, this moment, not tomorrow because that never comes then stop doing this and finish your thing!
