Less possessions should satisfy the longing to live more simply.

The principle of minimalism therefore has countless adherents.

However, giving away is not easy for many.

Countless books, tons of sweaters and every kitchen utensil in multiple versions: If you look around your own four walls, you will usually find

too much of everything

. The minimalism movement in particular deals with this topic. Those who want to live a more minimalist life part with everything that they don't need. This can go so far that the followers only have a maximum of 100 items.

Not only this extreme form of minimalism promises more time for the essential things in life.

According to the advocates, the weakened form also helps to keep the household * and the head more tidy.

Psychologist Ben Naoua confirms in an interview with

Welt.de

:

"By tidying up we can also create order in ourselves"

.

It is all the easier to keep the outside tidy when the apartment is not cluttered with unnecessary things.

But how do you manage to give things away?

Separate yourself from things using the 3-box method

Just donate or throw away everything that is broken or no longer needed: Basically, everything would be very easy if it weren't for the good old memories.

Because it is these that often make a separation extremely difficult.

If you have big problems separating yourself from things, you can try the 3-box method.

It is a kind of "pro motion throwing" recommended by the book author and lifestyle advisor Marie Kondo.

The first step is to pick up three large boxes (if you want, you can of course fill more boxes).

The first box contains things that you no longer need but want to keep, the second box contains items that you want to give away or donate, and the third box is reserved for broken and unusable things.

The contents of the third box are discarded.

What ends up in the first box is stored in the cellar for six months

, as

Welt.de

explains the Marie Kondo method.

Everything that you have not taken out of the box by then because you used it or missed it will also be donated or thrown away, it says.
