One of the cardinal rules of decluttering is asking yourself the following key questions “Do I use this?”, “Do I need this?” and finally “Do I love this?”. If you answer no to all three questions get rid of it.

Sometimes we keep things because it was a gift from someone special, but we need to let go of these sentimental attachments which are cluttering our world. In addition, if you don’t have a use for an item or piece of clothing, I can personally guarantee that someone will give the item the love & use it deserves. 

I consider myself fortunate to have the luxury of having too much stuff and being in this current situation where I “need” to reduce my wardrobe and other household items I have accrued over the years. There are so many among us who have little and will be thrilled to be given or purchase something at a discounted price (for example, the Salvation Army). 

Day 2: 


A pair of PJ bottoms and a tea towel my Mom gave me. Again, I have so much sleep wear I cannot keep it all in one drawer. The tea towel is not my style and it is a fabric which sets my teeth on edge. 

Day 3:

A Lululemon exercise top I rarely use as I have so many more tops I prefer, and two bras I have barely worn. 

Stay tuned for the next 27 days.
