My First Week With Less Stuff

Yesterday marked my first complete week of the #lessisnow challenge. I thought I’d start upstairs and work my way down, so the spare room is done and I’m now tackling my bedroom.

I thought it would be really hard. As I said before, I’m a bit of a hoarder lol…but I can’t even begin to tell you how easy I’ve found it. I guess I’m lulling myself into a false sense of security really, as so far I haven’t had to tackle anything that has sentimental value. But that’s good, because hopefully when I do, I’ll be better prepared to deal with it.

I know it will sound crazy, but, I kind of feel a bit liberated lol…does that even make sense? I have to admit that I’m guilty of looking at stuff and thinking “But that cost me blah blah…” I own about eight dresses (the sort you’d wear out to somewhere posh)…two of them are brand new…tags still attached…and one of them has been in my wardrobe for about seven years 🤣 It was a size too small when I bought it (but it was a designer bargain in the sales), and now, its two sizes too small…whoops! I’ve been carting it around from house to house, hoping that one day I’ll wear it. What an idiot…why do we do it?

I had an e mail yesterday from The Minimalist’s, talking about scanning all your old photos and getting rid of the hard copies. Ooooo…ummmm…I’m not sure I’ll be able to go that far, or that I even want to. Which reminds me…I shouldn’t get too cocky just yet… I haven’t even thought about the loft lol
