Decluttering is Liberating

Whilst discussing the issue of cleaning and clearing our home to the point that I feel comfortable to transport all that remains to our new home on Kangaroo Island, I found was defining my true self.

Lisa said “Enjoy the process [of decluttering] and be kind to yourself – watch the minimalists.” At first I thought she was calling a group of people ‘Minimalists’. But the ‘the’ made me think there was a movie. There is… The Minimalists !

Here’s are my quotes:


If you ever get a chance – empty your house of everything you own, remove all the clutter, then see what is left. It’s incredibly liberating.


We all seem to collect dust collectors, stationery, trinkets, copious amounts of clothing, pillows and towels.


Thankfully I am not a materialist. Better yet I refuse to have a credit card. Everything I own is because I wanted it AND because I can afford it outright. Some of my camera gear has taken me YEARS to buy.


Wow. Whilst responding to a statement, I defined myself. Ultimately I am a minimalist. But only in my own mind. Unfortunately my house is rarely representative on my mind.

My next post will explain how my this post and the one previous don’t conflict. Because I can see how you think they might.
