One thing I realised when spending a week in a holiday unit, with few knick knacks and doodads and only a few changes of clothes, is that we really need fewer things.
Not only were we able to cook, relax, have fun without all the vast number of different things, and lots of very similar things, but it was very liberating. It was easier to keep the unit tidy. Less time had to be spent on cleaning. It was easy to decide what to wear and what to do. There was less mess, less clutter, less visual distraction. Surfaces, darling, surfaces. They were clear.
So I have raced through the house, looked at a couple of shelves in my cupboard and quickly picked a few things to declutter.
A “crystal” ball. To someone else.
How’s that for a quick haul?
Makes me question why I have so much rubbish, so much stuff that shouldn’t have made it into the house, let alone be kept. I am a long way from having a “zen” house. I’m on a roll. Lets get rid of more!
