Back again…

As I told you in my last post, July tally, the last few weeks I have pretty much just relaxed and enjoyed my time off.

But enough is enough, it’s time to get back at it 😉

Back to my declutter task, back to my blog and back to getting some stuff done around the house!

So here is my first instalment, getting back on my declutter wagon!

  • 1 jacket
  • 1 pair of pants
  • 1 thermal underwear top
  • 6 T-shirt
  • 2 pairs of knitted wool socks
  • 1 BIG piece of silk – bought in Malaysia in 1995, intending to have a dress made…. like that ever happened!
  • 1 clutch
  • 1 bed sheet that don’t fit any of my beds…?
  • 1 pair of boots – they seemed like a good idea when I got them, but they’ve never been used…
  • 1 book – Thor Heyerdal, the adventurer
  • 2 software CDs never used
  • 4 empty DVD boxes (count as 1)
  • 1 pair of sandals – never used, what was I thinking with those heels!
  • 1 plastic serving tray (broken)
  • 1 almanac – 2010
  • 1 shirt – dads – and
  • 1 cardigan – dads – they won’t ever get used and it’s been almost 1,5 years, it’s time to let them go!

24 items, woohoo 😉

Now, if decluttering the rest of the house would just be this easy…

    Since we’ve been travelling (even though it is only for 3.5 months and we’ve only been gone for 1 month) – it certainly has shown us how we can live as minimalists! We have decided when we return home to embark on the journey you are on now. Declutter! We keep saying we will but now we have convinced ourselves its possible. So keep inspiring us please 🙂

      Traveling is a great way to see how little you really need. You can only bring but so much with you, before it becomes a pain to travel with “all that luggage”. After 3,5 months of travel, by the time you get home, I’m sure it you’ll realize how little one really need. And that in itself should make it easier to start the declutter process. I noticed when I moved to us (ended up being 2 years) with only one suitcase, that I didn’t really miss anything from my house. Now off course should I have moved permanently there a a few things I would bring (photos, stuff from family members no longer here, and a few other hing I just really like) but realizing I didn’t MISS anything, was a great way confirming that my things don’t own me.. Which makes it much easier to declutter my stuff. Enjoy your travels, and when you get home I’ll be cheering you on in your declutter adventure 😉
