Thinning Decorative Accessories and Hiding Clutter
I have a weakness for decorative items. As much as I love them, I went through my home thoughtfully editing and was easily able to fill two storage tubs and may do more.
It's amazing how much lighter the rooms and I feel! It's as if I can breathe better and am mostly company ready--a goal I've wanted to reach for some time.
I admire those of you who have lived this way all along--I'm a late bloomer, I guess.
I've told myself I can store the things and change them out from time to time. Whether or not I do that remains to be seen. I also have stopped bringing in more things (almost!)
I have designated hidden spaces for necessary clutter (paper, etc.) and am now keeping on top of it. I will periodically go through drawers, chests and closets. I no longer want to come home from work and see so much to dust and crap laying around on surfaces.
It's now a lot easier to keep clean (love Swiffers) and when the season changes, I'll be able to turn my attention to the garden and not feel torn between that and housework/organizing.
Anyone else clearing out and lightening their load?
