Most of us call them “keepsakes.” Organizers call them “sentimental clutter.” Whatever you prefer to call all the items that you have in your home from your children, your parents, your grandparents, even your own accomplishments, chances are that they are overwhelming.
These items are not useful for the most part. They are just very difficult to part with. They hold memories that are dear to us. Memories of when our children were young, such as a poem and hand print for every holiday. Items we can touch that once belonged to loved ones. Memories of accomplishments that we are still proud of to this day. Where do we even start to “declutter” these precious items?
