Today I am focusing on the little things.
One thing that I've learnt about decluttering is that all the little things do add up.
Even if those little things don't seem like they would make any difference on their own, they make a difference.
You know that saying 'look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves'? It's the same with decluttering.
Declutter the little things and the big mess will disappear on it's own.
5 Little Things that Together Make a Difference
Tools that I never use because I have nicer ones that actually work for me.
A zip I could repurpose after using the shirt as t-shirt yarn, but I already have a zillion other zips, I have no need for more. I don't even like zips.
String from repairing my string bag. It's string! I have loads more nicely wrapped on it's little reel, I do not need to keep this string. But to make myself feel better I did use the green bit of the string to tie the pin box closed.
Little pins that could be really useful for something, but I've got lots of pins already and I always reach for my sewing pins instead of these ones.
The broken thimble that I should have gotten rid of but didn't when I first reconginsed it as clutter.
Individually each of these things don't seem like very much. They even seem useful.
But together they add up to a lot and the truth is that in my home they are just clutter. And clutter is not useful. Clutter stops me from being able to do the things that matter to me. I'm saying goodbye to clutter.
What little things are you holding onto, but are really just clutter?
