MORE vs less: Would You be Okay With Living in a Storage Unit?

. at . Leave a comment

Day 27 – Living in a storage unit is awkward and not very homey.

For too many of us, that is exactly where we live, a storage unit.

Granted most of us are not hoarders that have to navigate floor-to-ceiling stacks of boxes and piles.

But many of us do have too much stuff in our garages, cars/trunks, closets, drawers, and storage units off site.

So much so, that we don’t like it when folks come over unannounced. We think, “Don’t you dare open any cupboard, doors, or drawers.” We don’t want anyone to see our stuffed, haphazard, messy collection of items.

If this describes you, you might be living in a storage space. How does that make you feel?

I know that describes some, many, okay ALL of my drawers, shelves, and closets (before I started this 31 day cleanse). And add the fact that I hardly used my piled possessions. I don’t like how I feel: ashamed, wasteful, lazy, and a bad steward.

But isn’t it great that I have today to declutter. I have today to start making different choices. And so do you. Then we can claim that our homes are spaces to live and not mountains of guilt, fear and STUFF.

“Your home is living space not storage space,” Francine Jay.

Your Turn . . . Look through this series of posts (here), to determine which idea you’ll first implement. . . .  These posts will help you learn How to Think Clutter-Free. . . .  Decluttering is not a linear journey. . . .Nor is there a perfect moment to begin. . . . Just get started and you’ll see your motivation rise and carry you through to completion. 

Day 27 –  31 Minutes of Decluttering = I spent 31 minutes in my pantry and refrigerator. I am already to go shopping because there is plenty of space.

I know that I zigzag in my decluttering. Some people might go crazy with such a schedule. But I like the flexibility and it works for me. I hope you find a schedule that works for you.
