Welcome to Day Five!
Today’s decluttering task is… NIC NACKS AND ORNAMENTS
Over time, bits and pieces accumulate in our homes that have been picked up from markets, given to us as gifts or collected as we are travelling. They initially seem like a good idea but as time goes by they become less loved or no longer fit with the décor of your home.
Today’s task is to get rid of all the nic nacks and ornaments that are collecting dust and taking up space. If they are sentimental perhaps keep just a few and choose a special place for them.
Consider if there are ways you could repurpose them into something smaller. I’ve written a post today about how to store, display and repurpose sentimental keepsakes. You may find it helpful.
It is OK to get rid of stuff that is new/unused or even expensive. Re-gift it, give it to charity, just don’t KEEP it!
Remember to think about these things when deciding if something should stay or go.
Do I use it?
Do I love it?
Does it serve a genuine purpose for a genuine need I have?
Am I keeping it “just in case”?
