You’ve decided to declutter.
You’re ready to go.
The kids are napping, at school, or at the park with their dad. You’ve emptied your drawers or cabinets in whatever room you chose to go through first, and right now all you see is STUFF.
But you’re motivated. Motivated to cut through the crap and only keep the good stuff. The stuff you use regularly.
The stuff you need.
The stuff you love.
You’re letting go of things you were keeping before out of obligation or guilt. Gifts, “family heirlooms” no one else in the family actually wants either, boxes and boxes of kids’ school projects you’ll never look at again (except for a few really special pieces).
But there’s still So. Much. Stuff.
Even after you go through these first steps. And if you feel like there’s still too much, there really is. And you need to keep going before you’ll be able to find the peace you’re looking for.
