Back in 2012 and 2013 I had a lot of posts on decluttering. I was seriously trying to get rid of our clutter. If anyone is interested just use my sidebar search: “Get Rid of 50 Things”.
Then I kind of let my foot off the gas.
In the mean time, while there are certain things I don’t have time for, I can go through items a little at a time. I know this method is the opposite of the KonMari Method but it’s what I have time to do in the 30 minutes before I leave for work each morning.
Recently I’m going through piles of stuff and finding new homes for some of it.
For example I’ve given away 3 perfectly good table cloths. I still have plenty, don’t worry.
And I had some odd towels which our son was happy to incorporate into his home. I also went through our pile of socks and matched up a half dozen pairs which he acquired — lucky boy.
Said son was also gifted extra pots and pans, sheets, and his casual clothing that was still boxed up at our house.
As I was searching for certain items that have been misplaced in the renovation, the front door knocker for example, I realized we not only have boxes of STUFF on the 2 main floors of the house but that the attics — house and cottage — have boxes of books and, and, and stuff.
It’s mostly got to GO! I feel a swap meet coming on.
What keeps you from getting rid of stuff?
