Wow, I looked in the closet that I need declutter and clean out and wonder why after almost 5 years in this house are we holding on to all of this stuff! Part of the challenge is that Hubby can't let go of any hobby items even if they aren't used for 20+ years. Ya never know ...
So half the closet will be devoted to his hobby history and some to storing the suitcases and an air bed. I'll have to see what is left that I can remove.
This has led me to wonder if I can declutter 2000 non-consumable items from our home this year and personally bring in fewer than 22. Hmmm.
I also read last year about the idea of visual clutter bothering some people and for sure it does me. So I’ve been putting things behind closed doors to decide about later. It also makes cleaning a bit easier and there is always a lot of dust here probably due to the farming not very far away.
The concept of resetting your home also appeals to me but I am taking it slowly as I want to do one or two spaces at a time and clean thoroughly at the same time. To start that means my office with some time on the small bedroom closet too. One very visible space and one closed door storage space.
So far I’ve found 29 items to remove and am clearing my office of visual clutter and rethinking what I want to have in there yet again. A tiny start but a start.
Do you have any decluttering or limited acquisition goals for this year?
