Clutter creep has reared its ugly head in my life.
My car is out of control with he stuff that is in it and the apartment is not much better.
So today will be spent on getting rid of unwanted and unneeded items.
I have car speakers that are no longer used. Gone. The old laptop just taking up space. Good bye. Clothes that need to go. Time for a clean sweep.
I am on the path to getting my life in order and on track. I am going to write the children’s book that has been in my head for a while now.
The resume is getting updated so that I can start applying for jobs that come up. I keep getting asked to take on more responsibility at work, which is fine, but of course there is no increase in pay to go with the added work. Well from now on if they want more, they have to pay more. I know that won’t happen so it’s time to look out for number one.
Anyway I digress.
Being more organized and having less clutter and less stuff in general helps me to feel more optimistic about life. It is more freeing. There is more time to do stuff I actually want to do.
Plus my apartment is not large so of course it just makes sense to not have too much stuff kicking around.
It may be time to empty the apartment out completely and go through each item to assess what should stay and what should go.
If you have any decluttering to do and get overwhelmed about the thought of getting started don’t worry. A lot of people feel the same way.
You can just try doing some decluttering for 10 or 15 minutes. Just do one area. The kitchen table or counters. There that’s better!
Or if you are feeling ambitious, clear a day or two. Get some boxes and bags. Put some music on. Get excited! This is it baby! You are going to be ruthless in your purging.
Whatever approach to decluttering you decide to use is the right one.
Just go for it.
So this is the plan for the day and going forward.
What do you have planned for the day?
Do you have any projects that you are going to undertake to help facilitate living a more minimalist lifestyle?
