Decluttering is a harder task than it should be. Why? Certainly not because it’s physically difficult, but it’s just So. Much. Decision. Making.
What to do with this, shouldn’t I be holding onto that and can’t give that away because it was a gift. It’s enough to drive a girl to
However, there’s one significant deluttering task that’s both easy and takes away the mental taxation of decision making.
Return everything in your house to its rightful owner!
That’s right. Drop those books off at your friend’s house, return all you can back to the library and stop waiting to bake cookies to return your neighbor’s plate. Even if it means boxing stuff up and mailing it across state lines, it’s time to get rid of everything in your house that belongs to someone else.
For me, it will mean mailing out the last giveaway books; returning my mother’s garden loppers and Rat Zapper 2000, dropping a tool at my in-law’s and gleaning the house for library books.
This is the easiest decluttering task you can undertake, so let’s all make a little more breathing room in our homes. After all, every solid object in your home means there’s less circulating air to breathe. And breathing is good.
