How to Avoid Reverting Back to Cluttering Habits
Stay decluttered by not bringing excess stuff into the home. Minimize Shopping.
Remind yourself that the empty spaces are peaceful, and resist the urge to fill them back up.
Try to pause and use other mindfulness techniques whenever you’re out shopping. Self-awareness is key- what thoughts are going through your mind when you shop and purchase something.
Be more mindful of anything you bring into the house. Avoid trigger products such as make-up, bath and body, home decor, clothes, etc. What need are you trying to fulfill when shopping? Has it ever truly filled that need?
Find a calming hobby to replace shopping. Or, volunteer your time since helping others is rewarding and fills a void.
Enjoy simple pleasures in life or go to the gym instead of over shopping.

Seek therapy for any underlying depression, anxiety, or OCD that may cause you to over shop.
Don’t beat yourself up for past over shopping or fail decluttering efforts. Stay in the present moment and realize it’s all part of your journey.
Remember God is your friend and pray and ask for his guidance :)
I hope this helps.
