Consciously work on bringing less stuff into the home. Work on training yourself to only buy the necessities and items you love. Remember: Items must either serve a utilitarian purpose or bring you great joy. If not, then donate them. The same goes for gifts you are given. Be sure to ask yourself if it truly serves a purpose or brings you great joy before finding a home for the items you want to bring inside. It sure makes it much easier when you do your next decluttering tune up!
