Useful or Beautiful

When people need to de-clutter and get organized, they usually come to me. Being that I am a "Less is more" person, I rarely deal with the clutter problem. I believe a cluttered house clutters your mind and is bad for the soul. Do yourself a favor. Take a look around your house, apartment, condo, or room that you are living in. Do you absolutely have to have everything in that room? I think the quote above is a really good rule of thumb. Go through your home, even if it's only one room a week, and clean house! Get rid of stuff, donate, or throw it out, but do it! There is nothing more freeing, motivating or peaceful than be surrounded by simple necessities and true beauty. Try it! Do it for yourself.......

Ah so pleased that we share this in common! I love decluttering and am constantly questioning the value of things and the beauty or comfort of clothes. Over the years I have got rid of so much and if something new and wonderful comes into our home, I try to get rid of at least one not-so-loved item to balance it out. Do you read any of the great minimalism blogs?
