De-Clutter your Life

Claire shared this very interesting article on Twitter and I thought that I should share it with you guys because I do think that it makes a lot of sense.

The process of cleaning and de-cluttering is such a therapeutic one. The article speaks about broken relationships in particular; however, I think that a seasonal habit of throwing out old stuff that is no longer necessary in your life and home should be encouraged. The added space and clear surfaces bring about a sense of freshness and freedom. That's not to say that you shouldn't replace the old stuff with new things, but I think that it's better to replace than to hoard. 

Some people are natural hoarders, I know that. Obviously, if that works for you, then keep it that way - you'll be very popular when it comes to treasure hunts as everyone knows that you are probably one of the few people who has got a rusty thimble!
