I honestly think moving house has been a blessing in disguise for me, in my journey to becoming a Minimalist. I have been forced to have a good look at things I own & decide what stays & what goes.
I am trying to get rid of things that don’t bring me joy, than pack them & carry them all the way to my new apartment & clutter the new place.
If you have lived at a place for a long time, ( 14 years in my case ), you will obviously end up accumulating a lot of stuff. So decluttering all of it is not only going to be a lot of work, but also a time consuming affair. However once you are done with it, I can assure you it will be deeply satisfying.
As I go through my stuff & pack my bags, I think it is time to pause & reflect & really ask myself, ‘What is it that I really need’? ‘What is it that I really use’? ‘What is it that I really love’?
As I try & find my answers, I ask you. If you were to move today, what would you take with you? What is it that you really need? What is it that you really love? What is it that you really use?
