A picture is worth a thousands words, so here is an 8,000-word photo essay for you.
|... having all your clothes fit into a chest of drawers |
- and needing only two laundry baskets;
one for darks, one for whites.
|... taking all the socks you never really use to the |
textile recycling bin.
|... owning only 5 pairs of shoes plus flip-flops |
(not present when the picture was taken: my wellies).
|... getting massively excited when a charity bag arrives|
in the mail from a place that accepts bric-a-brac
(no, I'm not giving them my old cassette tapes,
I am about to convert them to MP3s).
|... paring down your kitchen cupboard to just |
a few choice items.
|... getting a real kick out of gaining space.|
|... seriously downsizing your library|
and giving your bookshelves away to a friend.
|... keeping the stuff you really love.|
Decluttering is fun, but beware:
Decluttering is highly addictive.
