Today has been another session of clearing out the clutter,
I have spent a few hours today going under the beds in the back of the cupboards, through boxes and book cases.
And I have a few bins full of stuff that’s either broken or useless
I have repositioned some items from the rooms in to the basement out the way,
I have a mound of items to just be given to charity and I have a list of items being sold on eBay.
Why do we keep all these items lying around with no use in our homes and personal spaces? Some of junk I’m selling and giving to charity is always getting in the way or taking up space in my cupboards, but it’s all been there for months and years.
It feels good to just have a de-clutter, makes you appreciate the things you keep, why hold on to an item with no use when it can be given to someone who may benefit from it.
Old clothing that isn’t worn or doesn’t fit, books that I have read, books on topics which I could easily find the information online. DVD’s and music that can just be stored on a hard drive.
All these objects taking up their own bit of space, if I want to move I have to move them all with me, so I don’t need them anymore.
Items loose value as time goes on , when I upgraded my digital camera , I should have sold my old one straight away now 4 years later the old camera which has been in my desk draw all this time is worth nothing on eBay.
Be quick at clearing clutter, when the item is in the bin it no longer has any control over you.
Some things can be sold , but for the amount of time and effort and small amount of money you receive in return , isn’t it better to just give it all away in one trip.
With kindles and pdf books, why keep all the paper copy’s.
So just put on some music and dig out your cupboards, so what you find.
