◆ Why is decluttering necessary?Your money runs away because of things you don’t need
The earth-friendly writer uses rap twice. I will not throw away the broth of fish. But let me tell you. “Let’s throw it away!”, Unused clothes, books, empty boxes, seasonings, etc …
Did you move to a large room to store things you don’t need? Do you pay property tax for things you don’t need? It’s a big mistake if you think that you can use it someday and make a profit. Let’s refresh and make more money!
◆ Before buying a storage shelf ・ Before moving
We are very fortunate in this era. There is no such thing as “I’m in trouble because I don’t have things”, but I just worry about “Is there too many things to buy a storage shelf?” Or “Is it going to move?”
But before you move to buy a storage shelf, if you drive out the things you don’t need from the house, the whole house will be refreshed. “I don’t need a new shelf” “I don’t have to move to a large room yet”.
◇ Let’s calculate the money you can save!
・ Color box: 1980 yen ~
・ Plastic costume case: 2980 yen ~
・ Wall storage rack: From 18,900 yen
・ Moving fee: 70,000 yen (2DK, short distance, weekdays)
・ Security deposit key money fee: 675,000 yen (assuming rent 150,000 yen)
・ Rent difference: 20,000 yen / month (assuming you move to a room with a rent of 130,000 yen to 150,000 yen)
◆ No one praises me even if I keep things
If you are a collector of something, you may be impressed or envious of enthusiasts saying, “Oh, you have such a great thing!”
Books outside the collection, expensive out-of-date clothes, hotel amenities, bagged seasonings, branded paper bags … these things aren’t often praised by people. You won’t be envious.
◆ No problem even if you throw things away
Imagine after throwing away your old socks, stockings, and underwear. What will happen to you from tomorrow, throwing away these that have been pushed to the corner of the chest of drawers? Nothing has changed from today.
Because I haven’t been there before, I don’t mind if it disappears. You won’t regret throwing it away when you wipe the windowpanes or when you do a big cleaning. Instead, you may regret why you didn’t throw it away earlier.
◆ Money to pay for things you don’t need
In fact, things you don’t need suck up your precious money and time. Let’s say you have something you don’t need for 2 tatami mats. Because there are things you don’t need, you are robbing your home of 2 tatami mats of relaxing space and 2 tatami mats of storage space.
If you are renting a property, you cannot make full use of 100% of the rent, and if you own a house, you cannot make full use of 100% of your assets, and you are paying waste.
Working or reading at a family restaurant or cafe can change your mood.
However, if you get into the habit of working or reading outside because you can’t secure space inside the house and you feel uncomfortable inside the house, you can secure space inside the house. You don’t have to pay outside to do it.
“I have something I want to use right now, but I didn’t find it, so I bought it.” This is a waste of time when I’m looking for something I want to use, when I go to buy a new one, and what I bought. Right.
◇ Let’s calculate the money you are paying for the unusable space of 2 tatami mats
・ If you rent 60 square meters and rent 150,000 yen: 8100 yen / month
・ If you own a 70-square-meter house and have a loan of 100,000 yen a month and property tax of 100,000 yen / year: 5014 yen / month
・ Coffee to drink to secure space outside: 7600 yen / month (assuming you drink 380 yen coffee for 20 days)
・ Time for you to search for things: 3000 yen / month (assuming a person with an hourly wage of 1200 yen searches for 5 minutes every day)
It’s really “mottainai” to throw things away. My heart hurts. It feels unfriendly to the earth and is hard to throw away. Now, let’s recycle and walk the second life for things that we still don’t need.
Don’t ask for a reward because you’re throwing it away. Forget the price when you bought it. At online auctions, we sell branded boxes, ribbons, and even handbags! It’s a place where things you don’t need can be transformed into someone’s “things”.
◇ The place to throw away is not only the trash can
By making good use of the following, you can reuse it without throwing it away.
・ Regional recycling center: There is also a system where you can pick it up for free or deposit it for sale. Please check with each recycling center.
・ Let’s make good use of recycle shops and flea markets
・ Let’s put up for auction online
◆ Let’s throw it away now
What if it is “mottainai” to think that it is “mottainai”?
Remember in the fridge. In the refrigerator, seasonings and sweets that do not easily decrease. Are there any delicacies or delicacies in the freezer during your long stay? If you pack too much in the refrigerator, it will consume more power and increase your electricity bill.
Even while looking for something in the fridge, the cold air escapes more and more. If you think it’s a waste, use it immediately. It is “mottainai” to use the electricity bill, save it, and throw it away after the expiration date.
◇ You can save money by cleaning the refrigerator.
・ Do not pack too much
・ Shorten the opening time
It is said that you can save electricity bills by 1000 yen a year just by doing these things.
◆ Save money with Less is more
Less is more means “less is more”. If you throw away what you don’t need, you will have what you really need. Can you live with such a small amount at first? You might think, but it’s strange because you can live.
Food that I bought too much at a bargain. Tableware tailored to Japanese, Chinese, and Western dishes. Clothes, bags, shoes that I bought because I thought I might have them. Did you need each one? Is there anything that can be substituted?
If you have a clear lifestyle you want, you will have the minimum amount of things to buy. The season for changing clothes is your chance! Prepare a big trash bag and reborn your house and you.
