Decluttering Feels Good! 

I don’t know about you, but I love to declutter! I just find it so rewarding to have less stuff and see everything look nice and tidy.

Of course, the best way to be sure not to over clutter our lives, is to not buy stuff we don’t need. But it’s hard! You know how it is. You absolutely MUST buy that lipstick in 3 different shades of red.

I’m really trying to buy fewer things, (to save money and space!) but over time, things do add up, so I like to,  every  now and then, take 5 minutes and do a quick, ruthless,purge of stuff!

The other night, I thought I would go through some of my stuff in my dressing table.

Here’s what my body spray drawer looked like before: (12 items in drawer)


Here’s what it looked like after: (7 items in drawer)

I also did my nail varnish box. I barely even wear nail varnish! Why do I need so many?!

To start, I had 29.


I reduced my collection to this: 7 items.


Total number items my friends and family will be inheriting after 5 minutes of sorting? 28.

My general rule, is just to go with your gut! If you don’t love it or use all of the time, donate or sell it! If you’re in two minds, it’s gotta go. If you were sure you still needed it, you wouldn’t be in two minds!

Be ruthless people, you do not need loads of stuff! Just try it. Guaranteed you will feel so much fresher afterwards!

I hope you enjoyed this post!
