This is a good time to get rid of the old and bring in the new. If the bulk of material items you have is weighing you down, it`s definitely time to clear away the clutter. Quit making apologies for the state your house is in and actually do something about it. You may be hanging onto some things for emotional reasons, but you`ll be surprised how much better you feel once they`re gone. You don`t have to get rid of everything, but the more you throw out, the more room you`ll have for new things. Of course, some things can`t be replaced, so don`t feel bad for keeping those items that you could never put a price on.
