I’m busy downsizing again, with a move coming up, it’s an ideal time to get through the cupboards and the shed and just get rid of the stuff that has not been used in the three years we’ve been here.
I’m a member of Freecycle so I’m busy posting freebies, and hopefully these items will go to families who will use them.
The hardest part is decluttering my child’s bedroom – I sneak in during the school day and see what I can find. I’ve also given away his clothes that he’s grown out of – this time to a dear friend in a different state for her little boy. The clothes are quickly grown out of and often in a really good condition.
It’s also quite a freeing thing to do, reduce the stuff that gets in the way of living the life I want to live. We surround ourselves with so much, that I think the padding gets in the way of connecting with those around us.
So for me December is the month I will reduce, recycle and re gift. Will you join me?
