Decluttering Craft and Hobby areas

If you have a hobby that uses materials, you probably have a “stash”. If your hobby involves equipment, you may have older models or versions. These are prime candidates for decluttering.

Ask yourself:

  • will I ever use this again?
  • Does it still meet safety or environmental standards?
  • Is it still in fashion or totally dated?
  • Is the quality up to what I now use?
  • Do I still have the tools needed to use or maintain it?
  • Is it worth more to someone else than it is to me?
  • Has it degraded in storage?
  • Could I use the money I’d get by selling it, or the space it’s occupying, better for something else?
  • Would it be easy to replace if I ever needed it again?

You may also have information resources for your hobby – books, magazines, videos, CDs etc. More questions:

  • Do I have the technology to use/read/play this?
  • Is the information still relevant, or outdated?
  • Are my skills now well beyond this level?
  • Am I still interested in this facet of the hobby?
  • Can I find this information elsewhere?

Decluttering your hobby or craft “stuff” can free up space, energy, time or money to actually DO the thing you want to do!
