I’ve been clearing out and decluttering ready for some fresh energy and a life shake up!
And it’s been tough!! Yeeeeears worth of mementoes to pour over (it’s a skilled avoidance tactic 😇)
But it HAS been made a LOT easier with the 5 F’s:
- Fix it (Do)
- Fling it (Ditch or Delete)
- Forward it (Delegate)
- File it (Defer)
- Have Fun!
I read Marie Kondo’s Art of Decluttering and she advocates asking 2 simple questions, is it useful? Does it bring you joy? Which to be honest sounds fab BUT I’m wired to find joy in freaking EVERYTHING so for me I found that was tough.
Like any strength, we bring them to life in different ways in different context and in the context of decluttering my strength o appreciation of beauty is overplayed and I need to leverage my other strengths instead.
Hence an injection of structure…and it works!
No method in and of itself is ‘right’.
It’s understanding yourself and how you operate best then creating your own YOUPrint rather than be disappointed with other people’s blueprints 🤩
Have you found your preferred way to declutter and organise?
