On this quest to simplify my life I have found decluttering is done in layers. I get rid of things that I am ready to let go of at that time. When I become dissatisfied with the state of my home, I cull another layer.
There are times while decluttering I think to myself, "Why have I held on to this ____ for so long?" It was because I wasn't ready to let it go but now I am and I happily toss it in the trash or charity box.
Sunday, I went through linens I had been holding on to and culled a bag full. I have gotten rid of a lot, but there is more to be done. With each box I donate or bag that I trash, I feel lighter and freer.
I am creating the life I want.
One layer at a time.
