De-cluttering As You Go Through The Holidays
Here come the holidays and here comes more stuff! How can you get more stuff and still keep your life simple? Some tips to help with de-cluttering:
Take another look. As you pull decorations out, or put them back, take a second look at them and decide, once again, if it makes you feel joyful to look at or use them. Even letting go of one item will make you feel lighter, and that object might just be the very thing that makes someone else’s heart sing (which is how you should feel, too!)
Dealing with gifts. Think about how you feel when you give someone else a gift. If they don’t truly love it, wouldn’t you want them to pass it on to someone who will? The most important thing about giving a gift to someone is the love that originates with the gesture. That being said, remember gifts are given to you out of love and if someone gives something to you that isn’t a perfect fit, give it to someone else.
Clean and simple. I’m sure a lot of us have watched shows on HGTV and the like, and enjoy the clean and simple decor that is featured on many of those shows. Less stuff means less dusting and cleaning, and simplicity makes it so much easier to enjoy the few objects that you carefully arrange there. As always, remember that you can keep all the stuff you like, but store things away and switch them out with other items to be enjoyed.
