Why De-clutter your life in 2021?
Well simply because clutter is equal to chaos. And who needs more chaos now in 2021? None of us. Right?
Besides chaos, clutter costs us
- More stress
- More delays
- More missed opportunities
- More missed appointments and bill payments
- More heartache
- More headache
- More anxiety and inability to decide the best option
In the US, a lot of folks know about spring cleaning. But, who says we can not clear the clutter in our home in January? or in Winter (or whichever season you have wherever you are reading this blog)?
As you all know, we downsized our home from a two-story 5000 sq ft to under 800 sq ft a few years ago. This was a smart move in our journey to get financially independent by 2030.
In this transition, we sold a lot of our possessions and managed to fit everything we need now and in near future in our small apartment. We also do not have a separate storage unit anywhere. Why pay for more clutter that we ask someone to store and pay for it but never need to use it?
But, sometimes this small house can feel cramped. We both can use some more de-cluttering, especially the paper clutter, books clutter, and our kitchen items. Just last night, I actually had a dream about how much stuff we still have in this tiny apartment. My granny who is a neat-freak came into my dream and gave me a good lecture on how to keep the house clean. Well, no one should come into my precious dreams and threaten me with what I already know about my homemaking skills. Not even your nana!
