Organize and Declutter (Day 6 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)



Day 6. Organize and Declutter. Let go of something in your closet.
I read somewhere that attachment to material things create a void inside you. Letting go of a thing or two from your closet is the start of escaping the prison of materialism.
 
Good order is the foundation of all things. –Edmund Burke-
A visit to my walk-in closet and dressers made me realized that I have tons of clothes that I don’t wear anymore at all. As I organized, I made a decision of which clothes to let go. After hours of folding and arranging, twelve drawers, two ottoman storage, and a walk-in closet are more orderly. Simple action that made me feel more productive and efficient.
Reflection: Good order is the foundation of all things. –Edmund Burke-

  1. Really great post. When you have a wardrobe clear out you really do realise how many garments we don't need. Fast fashion is becoming such a problem these days - I feel it's so important to be able to resell, upcycle and so on otherwise it is such a waste. One man's trash is another mans treasure. Best wishes. xo

  16. I am really good at decluttering, I can do it in a day or less than a day. The only problem I have to face is that once I declutter, I end up storing them because I have problems with letting go. It's always like something has it's sentimental value that's so difficult to let go. LOL. Now, I need to declutter my storage area.
