I kind of like this January. Despite having been sick with the flu for the last week and a half and some frantic catching up at work, January still feels like a respite from the hectic pre-holiday days.
A time to reflect and make plans and refocus.

Due to the flu, there hasn’t been much sewing going on, but I made lots and lots of plans for spring and summer sewing. I also did some decluttering on shelves here and there and took the time to clean out my closet yesterday. It’s amazing how much stuff accumulates within a few short months of the last decluttering! I’ve also been unsubscribing from some annoying email newsletters since the start of the year, keeping only the ones that I really like to read. Digital decluttering, I suppose and so easy…just take a few seconds to unsubscribe as they come in.
Adding in that we cleaned out our pantry and basement during the holidays, I feel the new year has gotten off to a good fresh start.

      Thanks 🙂 Starting out is always the hardest part of decluttering. The way I did it (and still do) is usually: tackle one space / closet / cupboard at a time and then empty it out completely to sort the stuff that was hidden in there. Back in only go the things I am absolutely sure about. Everything else either goes in the outbox (to be donated or thrown away) or in the box for items I need to think about a while longer.
      It takes time to declutter, but tackling one space at a time on a regular basis means you’ll some day be through with everything and it’ll be the best feeling in the world. We don’t realize how much stuff and clutter is weighing us down until we get rid of it!
      I can really recommend the book “The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life” by Francine Jay. After reading it you want to get rid of everything 😀
