So a little update on how this de-cluttering is going, in short slowly. I sorted out just a fraction of my stuff and placed it ready for either selling or donating. Looking back on the purchasing of some of my stuff now.
All this de-cluttering is proving to be quite fruitful, for the local charity shop anyway. I have started slowly and have set a challenge of at least one item or one group of items everyday. One thing that has surprised me apart from the amount of crap I own is that it doesn’t take much time.
I mentally pictured each area I was going to declutter, wardrobe, under the bed and the store-room with the tools in. All these areas had items I no longer used or was unlikely to use. On that aircraft I drifted into a thoughtful sleep my dream was for a more meaningful life with less stuff.
Today is completely different I have a healthy bank account and can choose what I do and where I go. I spend less as I ask myself what value is an item going to give back to me. This is probably the best position I have ever been in. 12 years ago I owed thousands and worked just to pay back debt.
