Ok, you gotta go

thI just finished reading a book entitled
The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life – Francine Jay

I learned many things from that book and it has inspired me to tell my stuff…..


I’m systematically going through all of my stuff and interviewing each piece. I know it sounds weird, but it works and it makes sense. Try it. Pick up any object in your home and ask it the following questions:

Why are you here?
How did you get here?
Do you bring me joy or happiness? If not, do I still need to take care of you?

If the answers you receive are inadequate the object must go.  Trash it, Sell it, or Give it away.  Don’t let it sit there.  Don’t forget…..

It’s Only Stuff

Here’s your task for today.  Look around your home and question a few of your objects and see how it goes.

One less object in your home is a small victory.  Keep going.  The feelings you will encounter will be surprising.   Let go and be free grasshopper
