When I opened this month's magazine I was feeling very clutter militant after a week of chucking stuff out.
There was the usual leaflet clutter within the pages....
This month they had surpassed themselves - 11 mini booklets and advertisements.
And what if you succumbed and purchsed that robin ornament?
Now if you own such a thing and love it - well good I'm pleased for you and I am not having a go at you at all.
But........ all I see is something with lots of nooks and crannies that will need to be dusted.
As I de-clutter and as I shop - I am asking myself more and more - how much maintenace will this need, how often will I dust and re-arrange it? How much of my energy will it drain?! If the answer is, too much, then I am getting rid of it or not buying it in the first place.
I have, long since, gone past the question of "Do I need it?" I've now moved onto "Does this need me to dust, sort, re-arrange......?"
Just a thought :)
