Day 6 – Lighten the Load

When it comes to clutter, I think we all have a bit lying around. Hopefully not like the pic!

Well, clutter can definitely put a crimp in your overall well-being. I have tried so many de-cluttering ideas, but the one that works best for us is to get rid of one thing every day. It is really simple but the beauty of this rule is in how vague it actually is. One thing every day can mean one toy, one item of clothing, or one dish. Or, on a tough day, it can mean one slip of paper and on a “gung-ho” day, it can mean one box or one bag! (Those days are my favorite but they don’t happen that often.)

The point of this is to be mindful of what you can handle each day. If you are naturally drawn to clutter then take it slow and if you are ready to make the move to minimalism then a box it is!
