“Today is your day to let go of things that no longer serve you.”
We’ve spent a significant amount of the last two weekends, clearing the clutter at Chez Wright.
Christmas is coming (there I said it) and we’re decluttering in preparation of the change of seasons.
But that’s not the only reason. My daughter has started holding an annual fundraiser, in November, for a local children’s hospital. This was last years.
Decluttering provides stock to raise funds…
…but more on that next week!
While we’ve been having fun decluttering kids’ bedrooms, I’ve also been taking the time to find general clothing and other items that are no longer needed.
Not everything can be used to raise funds.
I now have a few bags of decluttered items.
Time for a reminder.
It may seem a no-brainer that as soon as you fill the bags, they go.
This isn’t always the case. Well not for me anyway.
There can be piles of clutter waiting to be rehomed.
It’s important, at this point, for it to be gone.
Items can end up creeping back into the home. Particularly if the bags catch the Kids’ eyes.
That’s my ‘must-do’ today. The clutter bags are to be dropped at the charity shop. And the small pile of items that are being given (after much consideration – as I do not want to clutter others up) to another person, are ready to be collected.
It’s important to have closure on the clutter and clear it completely. Else the bags of clutter, become clutter themselves!
