Easy Ways To Declutter Your Life

简单整理你的生活的方法

1. Donate your old unused books to a local library.

旧的不用的书捐给当地的图书馆。

Recently, I donated 20 kg worth of old books that I hadn’t used for years. To be honest, getting rid of books is tricky. They are valuable items that we associate with knowledge and improving our lives. The fact is, however, they don’t contribute any value lying on your shelves. If, for some reason or other, you gathered tons of books and didn’t read even one of them during the last year, I promise you, donating them is the best thing you can do.

最近,我捐赠了我多年没有使用的价值20公斤的旧书。老实说,摆脱书籍是很棘手的。它们是有价值的物品,我们联想到知识和提高我们的生活。然而,事实是,它们躺在你的书架上不提供任何价值。由于某种原因或其他,如果你甚至聚集大量的书, 在去年开始不再读其中的一个,我向你保证,捐赠是你能做的最好的事情。

You get more space and other people can read more interesting titles. It’s a win-win-win situation!

你获得更多的空间和其他人们可以阅读更多有趣的标题。这是一个三赢的局面!

2. Replace a pile of books with an ebook reader.

一堆书换成电子书阅读器。

Here’s another point dedicated to books, maybe because I just love reading. The truth is, since switching to an ebook reader, I increased the time I spend reading tremendously. Firstly, I can carry the reader anywhere I go, so any moment of free time that pops up suddenly can be devoted to books.

这里是另一个专门的书籍,也许因为我爱阅读。事实是,因为切换到一个电子书阅读器,我极大提高我阅读所花的时间。首先,我可以携带阅器去任何地方,任何时刻的空闲时间,突然弹出来就可以致力于书籍。

Secondly, I decluttered my shelves (later, I also removed them), so there’s no longer a big pile of books collecting dust and distracting me.

其次,我整洁货架(后,我也将其搬走),所以不再收集一大堆书籍和灰尘,分散我的注意力。

Last but not least, my digital library can become so huge that the equivalent of a traditional library would need at least one extra room. Using a reader, you can carry it in your pocket.

最后但并非最不重要,我的数字图书馆可以变得如此巨大,相当于传统图书馆将需要至少一个额外的房间。使用一个阅读器,您可以把它放在你的口袋里。

3. Get rid of your collection of CDs.

摆脱你的收藏的CD

In the era of such drastic technological progress, CDs quickly became old-fashioned. Yet many people still keep them. I used to be one of them too, until I realized there’s literally no value hidden in a stack of films and video games. Everything can be accessed online, which is also a way more ecological approach. By switching to digital versions over buying CDs, you not only support the environment, but you also no longer need any extra space to store your collection. Kill two birds with one stone!

在如此激烈的技术进步时代、CD很快就过时了。然而,许多人仍然收藏他们。我也曾经是其中的一个,直到我意识到在一堆电影和视频游戏中字面上没有价值隐藏。一切可以在线访问,这也是一种更加生态的方法。通过切换到数字版本购买CD,你不仅支持保护环境,但是你也不再需要任何额外的空间来存储你的收藏。一举两得!

Maybe you can even make some extra money by selling your CDs. There are some serious collectors (who’ll probably never get the idea of decluttering) who can pay you to get ahold of your stack.

也许你甚至可以通过出售你的CD攥一些额外的钱。有一些严重的收藏家(可能会有永远不整理)的想法,谁能抓你的堆栈支付你。

4. Donate or throw away clothes you didn’t use in the last 3 months.

捐赠或扔掉在过去的3个月你不使用的衣服。

Obviously, this rule doesn’t apply to a winter jacket when it’s summer, but you get the point. We all tend to gather clothes and keep them although we don’t wear them, even occasionally. Over time, this can make you need another wardrobe. Instead of letting your collection of clothes grow bigger and bigger, devote an afternoon to decluttering.

显然,这条规则并不适用于冬季时候夏天的夹克,但是你明白的。我们都倾向于收集衣服,尽管我们不穿,甚至偶尔穿一下。随着时间的推移,这可能使你需要另一个衣柜。而不是让你的衣服变得越来越大,花一个下午开始清理。

You can sell your clothing, donate it, or simply throw it away, depending on the quality. The worst you can do is convince yourself you may need something in the future even though you didn’t use it for years. Whenever you feel like not throwing away an unused item, be aware that it’s the biggest sign you should actually remove it.

你可以卖你的衣服捐了它,或者只是把它扔掉,这取决于质量。最糟糕的你能做的就是说服自己你可能在未来需要即使你没有使用它很多年了。每当你感觉不扔掉一个未使用的项目,请注意,这是实际上应该移除它的最大的信号。

5. Determine possessions that take a lot of space and no longer serve you.

确定需要很多空间和不再为您服务的财产。

The more furniture you have, the more likely you are to fill them with useless possessions. Oftentimes, they take a lot of space, so you waste your time organizing, rearranging, cleaning, and storing. And the bitter truth is, you don’t use them! Almost everyone, except the serious minimalists, stores some redundant items without even questioning their purpose.

家具越多,你就越有可能填补它们无用的财产。通常情况下,它们占用了大量的空间,所以你浪费你的时间组织,重新整理,清洁,和储存。和痛苦的事实是,你不再使用它们!几乎每个人,除了严重的极简主义者,保存了一些多余的物品没有质疑他们的目的。

The cellar is often the place of choice to store the long-forgotten garbage which has no real value, but for some reason, we tend to keep it. When it comes to decluttering, you need to be ruthless and ignore the sense of attachment to possessions which, most of the time, turn out to be nothing but outdated junk.

地下室往往是选择存储被遗忘的地方,垃圾没有实际价值,但是由于一些原因,我们倾向于保持它。清理时,你需要无情和忽视对财产的意义,大多数时候,是过时的垃圾。

6. Get rid of the garbage on your desk.

摆脱你书桌上的垃圾。

From personal experience, nothing leads to more procrastination than a chaotic desk stocked with office accessories, documents, papers, books, and dishes. At least, this is what my desk used to be like before I became a minimalist and more mindful.

从个人经验,没有什么会导致拖延超过一个混乱的书桌的办公用品,文件,论文,书籍,和菜谱。至少,这就是我的桌子是像我成为一个极简主义者之前,更在意。

A disorganized desk is a serious focus killer. If you tend to waste your time in front of a computer, I’m almost sure your desk begs you to clean it.

杂乱的办公桌是一个严重的杀手。如果你想在电脑前浪费你的时间,我几乎肯定你的办公桌在恳求你清理它们。

7. Review your expenses and monthly bills.

回顾你的费用和每月的账单。

Keeping track of your expenses is one of the best financial habits you can adopt. And if you didn’t yet, it might be the case that your expenses require some serious decluttering (so your wallet can get heavier). Determine the amount of money you spend monthly on various things. Once you have the list, look for services and subscriptions which you don’t use anymore, yet pay regularly for (what a gold customer!).

记录你的支出是最好的理财习惯。如果你还没有做,可能的情况是,你的支出需要一些严重的整理(所以你的钱包可以更重)。确定每月你花在各种事情的钱。一旦列表,寻找你不再使用的服务和订阅,但支付定期(黄金客户!)。

If there are any unnecessary expenditures, stop paying them. You’d be amazed how much more money you could save monthly by carefully reviewing your expenses.

如果有任何不必要的支出,停止支付他们。你会惊奇地发现,你每月通过仔细审查你的支出可以节省更多的钱。
