Best Feeling This Month: Decluttering

Yesterday I needed to take a break from studying and began doing a small decluttering project. One cupboard led to a few shelves, led to my holiday tubs, and then the dish cupboards. By the end of the day I ran out of boxes. It feels good knowing I can donate some of my treasures to the thrift shop where someone else can enjoy them. I am relieved that some things are just going to the dump. I am ecstatic that some drawers, shelves, and cupboards are organized and looking all fresh and simplified. Ahhh.... what a good feeling. Now I think I will reward myself with a homemade brownie. Thank goodness I saved at least one good baking pan when I decluttered.

"People must be able to cut a knot, for everything cannot be untied; they must know how to disengage what is essential from the detail in which it is enwrapped,for everything cannot be equally considered; in a word, they must be able to simplify their duties, their business, and their lives."    -Henri Frederic Amiel

JEJ's biggest fear on days like today!


  1. Well chosen images to illustrate.

  2. Made me laugh when I saw the legs, the baby and the dog... now that's decluttering to the extreme.
    The first cartoon is me... even with tons of "stuff" all around, I often feel like something is missing. Oh man... does that set me up for psychoanalysis? (did I spell that right?) Roflol!


I always enjoy reading comments!
