About a month ago, my husband and I moved into a 14" trailer. We started downsizing over a year ago, and I still can't quite believe how much stuff we still have! Neither of us are terribly matetialistic, but we have both gone through long periods in our life having to go without. Once you've had little to nothing, it can be quite a mental challenge to let go of what you have accumulated.
I have found some rules on the interwebs that have helped.
1. Toss anything that is damaged -unless it can be mended in under an hour.
2. You must Love what you own. If it is something that you are holding on to for someone else, toss it or box it.
3. Be ruthless! It seems tough, but once that bag of donations and trash has been taken care of... the weight is lifted!
The more stuff we have around us, the more stressed out we feel and become. We deserve better!
Below is a link to some pins I have saved for inspiration.
Do you have any decluttering simple living tips?
I would love to hear from you.
How do you live more simply?
