It’s been said that one of the secrets of happy homemaking is to reduce the clutter.”If you haven’t used it in six months you don’t need it!”….is an oft-heard expression.
Three years ago it took me 5 months to pack our house for moving – and we weeded out more than we brought! I’ve been searching for a truly precious book since the move – to no avail. Then, unexpectedly, there it was – amongst a toteful of wedding souvenirs – including my hat – from 15 years ago. No rhyme or reason to why it was there – but buried treasure nonetheless.
With the advent of this new year, I decided to remuster and declutter again – and will keep my prized possessions in labeled boxes.
