The challenge for today is to decide how I would unclutter my life and business, get rid of things that fill up my spaces, weigh me down, and take those things/stuff and give them away to people that need them, sell them, etc.
This topic is near and dear to me as I’ve been decluttering my life for a while now, but boy, I still have a long way to go. Before I fell in love with simplicity, I used to collect whatever I was into at that point in time and I amassed quite a few collections. I have a collection of antique dolls (investment, really), a collection of shot glasses and other travel trinkets, I have a large number of books on a subject of doll collecting, dressing and repair, books on crocheting and jewelry making, real estate, and I have a large collection of CDs.
These are the things I can think of that can go immediately. I haven’t enjoyed or used them in a longest time and kept them really because of sentimental value (shot glasses collected with my husband) or a perceived monetary value (everything else).
As far as my business is concerned, clearing out my writing desk would be something I can and will tackle first. It has become a communal property of sorts and everyone is dumping their papers on it. I will be clearing it out and claiming my territory. Next would be paring down the old paperwork and organizing the new one.
