Day 28. Storage.
The dreaded storage or basement! Things that haven’t been used in a long time and are collecting dust. As someone in the facebook group said, ‘the place where household items go to die’… Examine what you really need and let go of the rest. We often get stuck by holding onto items ‘just in case’. If it helps, you can give yourself a timeline. For example, The Minimalists use the 90/90 rule to let go of possessions. When you get stuck on an item, ask yourself if you’ve used that item in the last 90 days. If you haven’t will you use it in the next 90 days? If the answer is no, then you probably don’t need it.
New Year’s Resolution: Declutter Your Life
Every day in January, there will be a short post with one area to minimize and declutter. There will be tips and tricks, encouraging articles to read, and some advice on how to proceed. Each image and challenge will also be on the Simple Adventure facebook page. Or you can join the facebook group: Declutter You Life for encouragement throughout January. If you want a place to ask questions, share your triumphs, or post your decluttered area, then comment and join the conversation on that day’s post!
You can also sign up for the Simple Adventure Newsletter to receive updates every few weeks. I’ll send you my favourite articles since the last newsletter.
