You want to declutter, but your family is not ready, so how do you get them on board?
This is probably the most frequently asked question I get asked and so I’ve thought a lot about it. Yes, it’s true that you cannot force someone to do something they are not ready for, but you can still get their buy-in and help when it comes to getting stuff out of your home.
The trick is to start with yourself and your own stuff. This way they can see what it means to declutter and learn from you along the way. I know, that’s not the news you were hoping for, but this approach has worked time and time again for me and my clients.
Listen to this episode and give these 10 creative ways to make decluttering contagious a try. You might be surprised at how getting your family to help with decluttering without them actually decluttering anything, can be the thing they need to finally let go and join you.
This episode of the Wannabe Minimalist Show will help you discover:
How to approach your family about decluttering
Why you need to start the ball rolling
What item you should keep in a central place to make decluttering easier
Why it’s imperative to make your decluttering efforts noticeable
A simple trick to declutter your home one space at a time
