I try to embrace the process and also to clean as I go along. That way I can see and feel the difference quite quickly, and that inspires me to do more.
Reasons I love to de-clutter
- It’s easier to get dressed in the morning when I have fewer clothes to choose from.
- It’s more enjoyable to cook when my kitchen cupboards are orderly.
- I feel lighter when I let go of things I feel guilty about.
- It clears my mind.
- I can find things more easily.
- I re-discover all the things I really want to keep because they bring me joy.
Tips from de-cluttering books I’ve read
I’ve read so many books on de-cluttering, I think I’ve lost count. I’ve taken something away from each of them, especially:
Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston
(don’t keep clutter under your bed)
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo
(keep papers in one simple file)
L’Arte De Simplicité by Dominique Loreau
(create simple daily rituals)
I’m on a journey to simplify my life, and a quote I always come back to is from William Morris:
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
That’s basically it, in a nutshell:
“Love it, use it, keep it.”
I hope this has inspired you to do a little de-cluttering yourself.
