Take the 30 Day Declutter Challenge: Less Equals More
As happy as we think buying stuff makes us, it comes with a price, and it is not only the price we pay for it. We must give it space in our homes, and we must give our time and effort to take care of it.
The Real Cost of Things…
As I have started to think of things in this way, it makes me think a little differently when I am making buying choices. There are things that I think I want, but as I think about them in the context of what I am actually trading for these things, I find myself realizing I do not want it as much as I think I do.
It also makes me think about what I already have, what I purchased before I realized the real cost, things in which I am still paying for with my space and time.
So periodically, I like to declutter. It is not necessarily something I enjoy the act of doing, but I sure do enjoy the feeling it gives me after I am finished. I feel empowered and like my stuff is not owning me and like I can better enjoy the things that matter. We are happier with less.
Periodically decluttering also helps me to stay better focused with my current buying decisions.
Having too many things keeps us from enjoying the things we do love. It takes time, space, and money.
So less means…
- More $
- More space
- More time
Less is more.
Less stuff. Less work. Less expense. = More money. More time. More joy.
Less equals more.
Let’s do this! Here is a 30 Day Challenge to get you started! Do a challenge every month or periodically through the year. It is a wonderful feeling at the end of the month to see the progress you have made.
