There’s something about the new year that makes me want to clear things out. I spent the weekend looking for things to donate or throw away. It feels liberating to lighten the household load, to let someone else enjoy the stuff that we don’t use or need.
Living with empty space might seem strange at first, but you get used to it. Then it feels strange to have lots of extra stuff around. I’m not advocating getting rid of everything; trust me, we still have plenty.
Letting go of things helps you realize that you have what you need.
By the way, January is Get Organized Month. It’s a good time to take action on your organizing projects.
Does this time of year make you want to unload excess?
