So Spring is here and it only seems appropriate to start some Spring Cleaning.
I thought cleaning out the closet was going to be really difficult but after some of my purging efforts that as part of my other things for the year I had a lot less clutter than expected.
The closet is still full… because I still have way too much stuff. But it is cleaned and more organized, so there is definitely a nice sense of relief.
Just a little more purging for the day. And a new task to check off the list. (Which should probably be done more often than I like to admit.)
This task makes me feel a little more productive and organized. It also made me feel like I should go grocery shopping to have more items (and health foods) around.
Even though this is only the third day of purging items I think this is going to be great for my mood and daily life. It feels great to organize and get rid of things that sit in piles and cause clutter.
I found this interesting article of 10 Ways to Declutter and there are a few on there that I might try. One specific is to get rid of one item every day for a year. I am starting with a month but maybe just try and continue past that.
Also, Why decluttering is good for you!
While I was researching for this I also found a Woman Did Not Spend Money for a Year. Of course she paid rent, bills, debts, and bought food but she cut out unnecessary items. I have on my list “do not spend money for a day” but I might add time to that. This could really help me save money for that house I am trying to buy too!
