4 thoughts on “Downsizing”

  1. “If you have the space, you hang on to it.” That is so true. I’ve played the “what if I have to downsize?” game in my head, and I have a pretty good sense of what things are most important or useful to me (about 1/2 or less of what I own) – but I have the space, so it doesn’t seem urgent. But when I’m honest, I know that these “extra” things just weigh me down and keep me stuck – and take so much more time to keep clean!

    So here’s my plan: I will get rid of at least one thing every day. I’ll throw away, recycle, donate (not much of it is worth selling) until I’ve pared down to what I absolutely need or love. Please do keep posting about your process. It’s inspiring.

    Good luck to you in all your new endeavors. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    1. I think getting rid of things can be addictive. Giving things away is great. I was going to do a car boot but thought it better to give things to charity shops (and with so much I’m spreading it around) so more money goes to worthy causes.I haven’t started on my clothes yet – that will be interesting, and hard. That will be another post.

    1. Yes a great small start – I’m having to be much more radical. I like the idea of 1 in 1 out (for books and clothes) and also heard of poeple getting rid of 1 item a day
