Decluttering My House & My Mind

As of August I have now lived in my home for twenty-four years. It is amazing how much things you can acquire.

I have lived by a policy of cleaning out things that I have not used in a year. Since my problems of mobility started I have not been able to do so.

I have been busy starting to declutter my kitchen cupboards. I was amazed of how many things I just was not using. Two large boxes of dishes, pitchers, and odd things and I was half done. I still have some to go, but feel good in what I have managed to accomplish so far.

I have also been doing the same chore, but it is with my mind. It has been over two weeks and I have not watched any cable news. Just the local evening news. I can say how I don’t even miss watching cable news. My mind feels settled, and more peaceful.

So dear reader, I may not be posting as much for the next period of time. I have lots to do and eventually it is my clothes closet that gets the hammer. Clothes that I have not worn in the past year will go into a box or bag and given to the local thrift store. I only give clothes that are in very good condition, never something that I know should be thrown into the garbage pail.

I would like to ask you, do you have a time when you declutter? If so, when and do you have a method or system while doing the task?

    I find decluttering very satisfying, so it’s something I tend to stay on top of and do regularly. Over the last year or so, I’ve started getting things that would have been worth keeping in the past when I wasn’t unwell, but now they just don’t fit in my life anymore.
