Welcome MMX!

It's a new year, full of fresh promise and possibilities.

A friend of mine recently shared his "list" with me. Similar to resolutions, but less loaded, don't you think? His list was very specific, with clear outcomes and definate goals. Not too long, ambitious enough to make him reach but not so much that he'd give up a week in.

My goals this year include: explore what a basement remodel could look like in terms of design, cost and what I could do on my own without a contractor. I want to declutter more (when don't I?), but I have some specific goals. I'd like to reduce the amount of stored "back-up" items that I have. There are items I have saved that I do not need to keep. Those must go out the door.

You can do this.
No more bins.
No more "this will come in handy for someone." Time to let go, and be freed. Free yourself! One scrap or one room at a time. Get help to get the heavy or hard stuff out.Set goals with deadlines. You can do this! And by the way, I'm not just talking to myself!

I came across your blog a few days ago and have been enjoying reading about your journey in your archives. You are very inspiring! Keep up the good work and thanks for keeping me on with the decluttering.

I just posted something about this - I always keep in mind the words of William Morris:

Do you love it? Do you use it (NOT will you use it, my bete noir)?

If no is the answer, let it go and open up room in your life for something better.

All the best with your continued journey!
