If I lived on my own, I’d have virtually no possessions, no TV, and a very organised and tidy house.
But I don’t, and as I can’t get rid of everyone else’s possessions, I have to find a way of dealing with their “stuff” and continue in my quest of living with less stuff.
My partner is a borderline hoarder who still keeps boxes from phones he no longer possesses!
I too battled for years to contain my “stuff “, I would stuff it all in drawers, cupboards and the garage.
The house would be serene looking on the surface, but the inner workings were a tangled mess of chaos.
I had the ever pulling urge to get rid of everything I owned, to make my overstuffed drawers and cupboards as clutter free as the surfaces so I started to get rid of stuff and it felt great, but I just kept filling up the newly acquired space with new purchases.
Then one day, I stumbled across a book which put me on a journey to simplifying my life. It immediately changed my attitude to shopping and clutter; it gave me a plan, a way to achieve the “click point” in my life, where I can actively live with less and everything I own sparks joy.
