Of course, decluttering is one thing, but maintaining it is something else entirely. I believe the key to doing that is to do a proper review every three months.
I recommend that people review their space every quarter to see what has crept in, because in every quarter there’s some kind of celebration from Christmas to Easter and summer holidays and Halloween. There’s always something that can creep back into the house and it’s important to keep on top of it with a quarterly review.
It’s also about planning what you need before going shopping. With summer clothes, I store mine up in the loft and bring them down before summer to review. Once I’ve done that I can see I need a new swimsuit or would like to buy a couple of dresses. With shoes, when one pair comes in, another goes out. I only have a small space at home for my shoes so there’s no point be over-buying them.
