Hello guys. How is everything? It’s been almost 2 months since my last post, so in terms of blogging, I am getting more productive, lol.
Oh, how have I been? Lots! For instance, we moved again to a new place. We were trying to find a new place for maybe a year. But then we found it at probably the best time. Since early February, we moved not far from the previous place.
From our previous moving time, I was in my third period of pregnancy and was overwhelmed with things we need to pack (aside from the feeling to just lie in bed all the time). I realized how much stuff I have that wasn’t necessary to keep being packed again and cluttering the space we need. It’s just silly to think of wasting time, energy and space just for all these stuff I don’t need.
When we finally have the chance to move, I know it’s time to declutter. I read some tips about it online, all recommend to sell, donate or throw away some things we don’t need. The strict ones like Swedish way (which is just to get rid of all stuff you don’t need without hesitation) definitely have my eye (and salute!) but I just couldn’t do it totally like that.
I have loads of clothes decluttering my closet, some of them I sold and sell (still), loads I gave to relatives and broken one I threw and reuse them to clean. In the end, I have more room in my closet (yay!).
Sold some of my old stuff on an online site/app dedicated for used stuffs. But some precious ones still in one of my boxes.
I also gave some old baby clothes to my relative who just have a baby. Some of my husbands shirts as well.
Hubby gave away old bike to friend and people who helped us move. (yes unfortunately we are not bike people)
In the end, it feels good to let those stuff out, so we can focus on things we do wear and use.
I actually join a group online focusing on borrowing things we have for others, but we also can barter for other things. I am currently interested to give/renting my warm/sweater/thick jacket since my city is not that cold and mostly sunny.
Maybe you don’t realize just how this decluttering thing is such a progress for a ‘keeper’ like me! Since young, I like to keep stuff because it has sentimental value or because ‘I might use it one day’. But when you move a lot, it’s not easy to carry them around. Plus, your house has more space.
There’s such a relief losing the stuff you don’t need, even more pleasant when the people you give feels happy having them. I think you need to be responsible with the things you have, don’t keep the things you don’t use.
Good night! Thanks for reading. Have you ever declutter or thinking to declutter?
