If I lived on my own I’d have virtually no possessions , no TV , and a very organised and tidy house .
But I don’t , and as I can’t get rid of everyone else’s possessions I have to find a way of dealing with their “stuff” and continue in my quest of living with less stuff.
My partner is a borderline hoarder who still keeps boxes from phones he no longer possesses !
I too battled for years to contain my “stuff “, I would stuff it all in drawers , cupboards and the garage .
The house would be serene looking on the surface but the inner workings were a tangled mess of chaos .
I had the ever pulling urge to get rid of everything I owned, to make my overstuffed drawers and cupboards as clutter free as the surfaces so I started to get rid of stuff and it felt great but I just kept filling up the newly acquired space with new purchases.
Then one day , I stumbled across a book which put me on a journey to simplifying my life , it immediately changed my attitude to shopping and clutter, it gave me a plan , a way to achieve the “click point” in my life , where I can actively live with less and everything I own sparks joy .
