Assalmo Ailkum.
I have a real need to de clutter as I have things everywhere.....The big problem is that I am very sentimental....I know that memories should be kept in the heart and that one should not be attached to material things as we leave this world,as we came without anything.I have been under a lot of stress lately and things have just piled up.Now I feel overwhelmed by this task.
I must get this done within the next couple of weeks.....Any tips or ideas.
Many Thanks,
Salaams.

 peace be upon you


first, try to relax sister.  make your self a cup of cammomile tea or mint tea. 

i think we all collect junk over the years.  perhaps you can  donate stuff away, give books or magazines to hospitals or schools, clothes to goodwill or shelters. they even take old furniture. 

take care

slm Sister.

Some ideas...

1.  Drop off old books and magazines at schools / creches / hospices / hospitals / old age homes
2.  Box up old ornaments and frames etc. and deliver to nearby schools who can raffle these off or sell them.

Hope this helps Insha Allah.

i was reading something related the other day.  it said that many people (upto 50%) get attached to things because of the associated sentiments.  like they don't see a bunch of tea cups, they see a gift from mom, dad, etc.
