I just started a very, very simple new habit that has ended up subtly but amazingly powerful for my decluttering.
I have placed a large, plastic 'Exclusively Donations' bag in a close, very accessible location.
I do not go through that bag, just donate it when I can.
Likely many have thought of this and do it, but those that don't or it wasn't successful last time, I recommend you try it in this way.
It is so easy and effective.
I think some parts of making or breaking the clutter, are very small, simple things. Tiny success-es add up!

The MIDDLE (MAIN) ... part of this message disappeared??? ..... Sorry!
Here it is:
When the thought comes into my head ... "I should give this old thing away." I stop what I am doing and immediately take 'the thing' to the donate bag.
I do not give it another thought! (very important step) ..... then I go back to what I was doing.
