How Is Your Decluttering This Month?
I set a challenge months ago, to declutter 1 item daily from your homes. I was surprised by how many amazing people have joined me in the challenge! It has been about 5 weeks since I last asked, so I wanted to ask you: How is it going?
I have been keeping to task quite well. Speaking the truth, I had thought that my only problem was an actual lack of storage space. As I do not actually have so many items, I have been unaware how much clutter I have until I began this challenge. I am no hoarder, but I keep paper. So. Much. Paper! It pours out onto every place, it seems so. I keep papers everywhere and when I rediscover them, I mostly cannot understand why I had the need to keep it instead of dispose of it immediately. So, I dispose of it now. It is such a waste of time looking through these items trying to remember: was it a topic of importance? From a long lost friend? A receipt from a memorable moment? A notification that will alter the way the system works? Or do I just have the habit of putting papers down to never be sorted again and then moving them with me from place to place while always thinking it something of importance? This, I do not know. But I am glad to be working through this challenge and to be able to work to repair the things I am doing to add to the clutter.
