I did so much purging of stuff before I moved (which I highly recommend) but as I learned you may also need to do more of it on the other side of your move as well once you see the space you have available to you.
Turns out my new home has a lot less storage space so rather than let it all stay piled up somewhere I sharpened my decision making skills and pared down even more. At this stage it gets tough because most of the items are ones I love and use. However there are three parts to this equation.
Clutter = anything you don’t love or use OR have the space to store.
So out it went. And you know what, now that’s its gone, I don’t miss any of it.
In fact it feels great! So great in fact that this load above was the first of two in my new house! Just when I thought I couldn’t get it down even more than I have, I went through again and added more to the pile.
Best feeling in the world! Well okay maybe not THE best but it’s up there :)
Do you have long forgotten piles of stuff that have been sitting there for some time taking up precious space in your home? Why not take a pass at purging some of it today and then after you feel the high of that, go through it again and again and again. You’ll be so glad you did! :)
What are you going to part with today?
I’d love to see YOUR purge pile so email me (orgjunkie (at) hotmail (dot) com) a picture of it with My Purge Pile in the subject line so I can check it out. In my effort to get others “hooked” along with me, I’m going to select one person from those emails to personally send a copy of Peter Walsh’s DVD, It’s All Too Much, which is a step by step guide for decluttering and bringing organization to every room in your home.
I so know you can do this!
I’ll make the email cut off Monday at 4:00 pm pst so be sure to send me your email before then. Just know that by emailing me your purge picture you are giving me permission to use it in future blog posts although you can remain anonymous if you’d like.
