goingtotherooftopoflove: I like to declutter but my DH is the opposite, he’s a bit of a hoarder. It took me a while to declitter after the wedding as I felt flat afterwards so held onto everything for a keepsake, but I did eventually get rid of some stuff. I like to sort through my clothes twice a year, at the end of each season I go through it.

I also love decluttering…I find it cathartic and it’s also a good reminder to STOP BUYING THINGS!  Ha ha, oh clothing, my old nemisis!

I made myself a fun little challenge where I had one week to declutter 7 items/areas.  An area could be soemthing small (just this junk drawer, or just this dresser) not a whole room which might have been overwhelming.  It helps to keep on top of small areas on the regular and it’s amazing of how much stuff you find to sell or donate even when you just deal with small spaces.

I’m amazed by people who dislike decluttering.  I had an old roommate like that.  I love the guy (he’s still a very close friend) but he was too attached to  his stuff.  He hated decluttering and constantly felt like if he got rid of something he’d need it again in the next few months.  Instead he prefered to play 3D Tetris with all of his belongings.  He was  a very neat guy but every area was stacked to the brim with items that were all complexly nested inside each other and fit together just so.  It made me insane.  I need a little free space to breath!

I did a bit. My desk/bookshelf in our home office was a wedding craft station for almost 2 years, and I had tons of stuff I never used or changed my mind on. I threw it out a few weeks ago after we got back from our honeymoon and it’s actually a nice tidy desk again.
