I've Had Some Success!

I cleared a certain area of clutter in my livingroom. In doing so I made space. I never had a dining table and chairs, so I went out and bought a set! If I hadn't cleared that clutter I'd still be stagnating, and staring at that same mess. Now I can eat at a table and chairs for the first time in 4-5 years, rather than eating on the couch or in bed.

I hope this provides some inspiration for someone out there, however small. Start with small areas. Reward yourself for a job well done. Then start on another area. I think I'm going to sort out all my clothes drawers next.

It's great eating at a table isn't it? That's my preference.

Thanks for the inspiration. Today I plan to declutter the half inch space under the couch. There's so much junk crammed in there we could have a garage sale with our loot.

Great, Jasmine! Now hat spring comes, and it's a tradition here to do some major cleaning in the house, I'll have to start decluttering and getting rid of tons of useless stuff I've gathered in my flat. I do it a few times a year, it's a hard work, but the best thing is doing like you do, starting from small areas. I need some decorating too, I've lived here for 2 1/2 years and don't have curtains and bookshelves yet, so that's my other goal to make my flat more liveable!Cheers, Jasmine! :)

Good for you! I'm slowly starting to gut my house of clutter...best of luck with your drawers :)
