I'm On The Track Of Simplifing My Life.

Hi all...I'm new here and this is definitely a place I'd like to be in.  I have not yet simplified my life but I am working on it and may be asking for your help over this next year.  Well, not that I need to put a dead line on it but I think it will help me to keep pushing forward on this journey of mine to simplify. So, I would appreciate any tips and/or advice. Thank you for your help in advance.  They say a cluttered house shows a cluttered mind and I need to simplify simplify simplify.  Because my soul definitely needs it.

Hello AmberRays Im quite new too only been here a few weeks. Im a serious hoarder, always have been but the relief when I do do some uncluttering is wonderful. Someone told me (apart from clothes you save for special occasions) if you havent used something for over a year then get rid of it - dunno if that includes partners though!

Tips for clearing clutter:-

When did I last use it?

Do I really need it?

Could I replace it?

Is it useful?

Does it make me feel good to see it?

If its cluttering up your life - get rid of it!

Make space for newness to enter. Love your life.

Often helps to make three separate piles of possessions

Positive need to keep

Unsure, keep for a while, maybe put somewhere and see if you need to retrieve them, so decide later

Got to go now!

Hope this helps - Good luck! - and clearing can improve your good fortune...
