Decluttering Tip of the Day

But about that digital decluttering…?

On the other hand, sometimes taking a picture really does help, and the one little electronic file you add might be worth it. Especially if you’re honestly not sure a picture of that item exists anywhere, and you’re really ready to let go of the THING but not the image.

I took a picture of my childhood teddy bear before I donated it. I saved the bear for nearly three decades, imagining my children falling in love with it and playing it. The thing is, I wasn’t ever really that attached to it as a kid – just attached to the idea of my future-kids loving it.

And they didn’t.

They couldn’t have cared less about it. So, I took a picture… it seemed like a way to pay that old bear a little bit of respect on the way out.

Eventually, as I was going through digital photos and videos later, I did find a video of one of my kids holding it while playing. It made me smile… and now I know that when I come across the goodbye photo of the bear later in my photo decluttering, I can delete it, since there’s a more authentic recording of it in existence.

    I am working on the 30 day decluttering, however it’s going to take me significantly longer. I have done this once before but I have found with my work schedule it’s just impossible to dedicate an entire month straight to this. So, I choose a day or two per month and work on decluttering things. Its still amazing that I can just open my makeup drawer or another place I’ve already cleaned out once and find 30 things to throw out. You give great advise so please keep sharing!
