Have you ever thought about the amount of "stuff" that you've accumulated over the years? If you are anything like me, there are little stashes of clutter all over the place. I always think this stuff will come in handy later, but somehow, it never does.
In the end, it is really therapeutic to periodically set aside a day to do some "de-cluttering." Ruthlessly throwing out books you'll never read again, unworn or unsuitable clothes and unwanted gifts can be very empowering. And if there is something that you no longer want, but don't want to toss, there is always the option to donate it. Giving things away to charity is making a positive contribution to other people's lives. All in all, this entire experience will make you feel as though you are taking control of your environment as well as making space in your home.
You'll discover other benefits as well. The less clutter in your home, the easier it is to find something when you need it. And remember, Feng Shui practitioners always advise "space clearing" as the starting point to transforming your fortunes as well as your house.
Why don't you try it soon? I'm sure you'll feel lighter and clearer, and that is such a nice feeling for the summer!
