I have learned in the 18 years of my adult life that having fewer possessions is key to a tidy house. I can’t say I’ve got it under control, but decluttering is a priority in my life and I add things to my get rid of pile every day. If I didn’t my house would be overrun with junk, plain and simple. I’m afraid it would look like something our of that Hoarders TV show. Okay, hopefully it wouldn’t be that bad, but the point is, I have to make choices each and every day about what to keep and what to get rid of. Having fewer possessions, means fewer things to pick up and put away and helps keep the daily crap shuffling to a minimum.
