One of my 2016 New Year resolutions has been daily decluttering. Nothing too intensive on any one day, just picking a corner/box/drawer/cupboard/shelf and committing a Neatness Of The Day. Some Daily Neatnesses will no doubt be more impressive undertakings than others.
This post seems like a decent way to prepare for systematising that: 200 Things To Throw Away. This house is full of stuff lurking in corners that we will never use again, so time to get rid of it. There are of course several gazillion other decluttering sites/apps/books out there, so I’m actively seeking other resources, but nothing that takes up physical space other than pixels on my screen, thankyouverymuch.
My other resolutions will probably be easier to keep in a less cluttered house, whaddayareckon? One can of course go too far (Diogenes (see below) was a proper mope and self-righteous about it to boot), but in general having a house where one doesn’t trip over boxes and everyone pretty much knows where to find things is preferable in a multitude of ways to me being the only person who has the vaguest idea where some things might be and having to wade through several layers of boxes to unearth those things.
Any non-weight-related* resolutions you’ve made that you’d like to share? Any useful resources you’ve found to help with organisation/motivation for making some of the changes you’d like to see?
Moderator note: it's been a while since we've written about it, but this remains a HAES blog where building healthy behaviours (that are achievable within our personal circumstances) is considered far more important and life-affirming than simplistic numbers on a scale. Please keep that in mind when sharing your own resolutions/resources.
