I don’t know what it is about midwinter that inspires me to clean stuff out of my house. But it seems the urge descends on me every single year.
This year I am helped along by the fact that we are replacing flooring in a room, closet and bathroom. Everything has had to come out, be looked at, and before it goes back into its space, evaluated.
I want to get rid of as much stuff as possible. There is a lot of junk around here that is unnecessary – duplicates that aren’t used, things saved for the future, or stuff that just doesn’t fit who we are.
Getting rid of stuff means that I use and appreciate what I have. It also means more free time because I don’t have to spend time caring for things I don’t use.
