Why Can't People Seem to Get Rid of Their Stuff?

According to Mayflower's 2018 Movers Insights study, the top five things that keep people from decluttering are: 

  1. Thinking that they might have a need for a belonging in the future
  2. They have an emotional attachment to an heirloom
  3. Their spouse or significant other cannot come to a consensus as to what to keep and what to toss
  4. They have guilt about throwing away a gift from someone else
  5. They have guilt about disposing of items that they own and bought with their own money
