As you know, I'm on a major declutter mission, and I'm happy to say I'm really getting there. In fact, I'm probably 80% done ... ok, maybe that doesn't include the loft space, but that's a whole new game.
I say those words, when shopping, browsing online, or even emptying a draw. My fear is that as things are leaving the house for the charity shops, I'm tempted to buy more things to fill the space, so often its a case of dump at charity shop and run out.
I'm not saying I'll ever live a minimal lifestyle, that's just not me. I like the pretty things in life, and having those around me, really does bring me joy, but I've realised the less "stuff" I have, the happier I feel.
I watch some of these makeover home programs and I'm sure the reason people like their new improved living space, is more down to the fact that things have been parred back and put away. So these days, I need to be more selective ... yes, that's the best word I can use, I'm selective about what I buy now. I just think and think again, if I really need it.
I hope you don't mind me sharing my thoughts with you, but I wanted to keep you updated on how I'm doing with my decluttering plan. I'm still on course, and fingers crossed I'll be there by the end of the year. The last thing I want is to make decluttering a goal once again but in 2017.
I'll leave you with a little photo of how are car looked the other day. Yes, we loaded it up from the little house, and off all this went to the charity shop.
