New month, second half of the year, fresh start…. at least so we try!
We are starting the onerous process of decluttering once more. And we are succeeding. Maybe one of these days, we will be able to bring our possessions down to 100 items and truly live a life of minimalism. We have A LONG way to go still because we are epically failing with over 100 books still be to be read on our book shelves.
Hmmm… wonder if the category “BOOK” is classed as one item in the list or each individual book does… that could be our loophole 😉
We ended up throwing out a mountain of shoes who have had their day, another bag of clothes that were not being worn, CDs that had been well listened to and will never be listened to by us again and a pile of handbags that were slowly disintegrating in storage!
Only the poor quality stuff ended up in the bins, all the other stuff we have managed to donate to different op-shops and recycle places so we are not adding to landfill by tossing it out. We hope someone finds good use in the things we have moved on.
Summary of July 1
Being ruthless with our things when letting go!
It really isn’t that hard to let go of things when we see the items for what they are and what joy they have previously brought us. Holding onto things does not do anything else except clutter the space and clutter the mind.
