Unclutter

There seems to be a great movement towards de-cluttering. I am fully on board. A large chunk of this weekend has been dedicated to this concept. I am already collecting many things for baby and it scares me to think there will be more and more and more things that we "need".

In an effort to make space and simplify, we are really trying to purge purge purge as much as possible. Now is a great time to do it since we are mid remodel and we are not even living in the house.

This is a great blog dedicated to unclutter. I think I will add it to my "morning routine". Check it out and get inspired. Unclutter your own life!



I love to shop....but lately it feels better to get rid of stuff than to buy it...honestly. Going forward we are also going to try to be uber conscience of any new acquisitions....(items in my closet excluded!!). This is a greener and more simple way to live.

PS - if I was a bridesmaid in your wedding...the dresses are all off to Goodwill tomorrow...stop me in the next 10 hours if you have an issue with this. And, if you were one of my lovely ladies, I really hope you have already purged your silver number....if you haven't, do!

What do you mean you didn't pick a dress your bridesmaids could "wear again" -- ha! I can't remember how many weddings I've been in where the bride told us that! Really? Did they honestly think I would wear a pea green dress with a giant bow on the arse to a dinner party or day at the office? Makes me laugh ...

Congratulations on the uncluttering!

I'm so on board with this--I agree with you on the shopping/acquisition dilemma. I try to only buy things I really want. I never impulse buy...okay well not "never" but "rarely" would be a more accurate descriptive. It does feel so good to unload a ton of stuff at your local thrift store or on Craigslist. De-cluttering also makes cleaning easier too. I really don't want my kids to grow up materialistic and I find that operating on a "less is more" basis is conducive to that. I added a few de-cluttering links to my side-bar a few weeks ago fyi. I learned a few tips myself!
