Decluttering starts with the smallest of steps

It’s got to 9.50pm and I haven’t decluttered anything, nor have I finished reading Monday’s chapter (about wardrobes) in Erin Rooney Doland’s book Unclutter your Life in One Week. I have, however, had a full and busy day at work; given my attention to the children; made dinner and had a relaxing facial. So you could say that I would be overdoing it if I was to start decluttering now.

(pause)

Just tipped out the contents of my handbag and reorganised. It’s a small bag so it didn’t take long. imageI found some expense receipts that need to be claimed back along with a couple of appointment cards that need to be scheduled in my diary. Not quite as big a job as clearing out my wardrobe, but it made me feel like I’d achieved something today.

As I have the audible version of the book I will listen to chapter one before I go to sleep, visualising how I want my wardrobe to look. So, no time will be wasted during my decluttering challenge and I will try to work on my cluttered closet (which I must say is only half filled with clothes, the rest is just ‘stuff’!) over the coming weeks – donating or tossing as I go.

Until tomorrow…
