In her article, “The Cost of Clutter on Your Finances and Life,” Melissa suggests that having too much stuff has both an emotional and financial impact on a person’s life. To prevent clutter from having a negative effect on a person’s life, Melissa advises people to de-clutter their homes and avoid replacing items they either sell or dispose of with new ones. She suggests that people wait a minimum of 24-48 hours before making an unnecessary purchase. She also recommends that people give intangible gifts to each other, experiences like a karate class instead of a skateboard, to prevent clutter from building up. She also suggests that people get rid of one item for every piece they bring into their homes.
