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.

Living in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia. BA in Political Science, bailed on pursuing law school, some how wound up in the wonderful world of HR. Blogging about everything under the sun from social injustices, minimalism & the corruption of over consumerism, mental health issues, diet, dating, book/restaurant/product reviews (only if I truly like them), and social issues. I hope to encourage and inspire being as authentic as I can be. I hope you enjoy what I have to share and please feel free to drop me a line.
