Once someone has thought about and understand some of the reasons why they may be holding onto stuff can now begin deciding what to do with it. Make sure to have several empty boxes that are in good condition and willing to donate.
I personally used the 3 box rule to help get rid of stuff. The first box is used for donations, second box is for throwing out or actually selling and third box is for keeping stuff. Make a goal of how many boxes that need to go and stick to it!
Remember, donating and getting rid of boxes count as the same. The goal is to get rid of stuff for less clutter in your home. Ask for help to help load up the boxes that are going and to help hold yourself accountable. Now get out and get to work.
