I love stuffing - for Thanksgiving dinner. But stuffing items away just to get them checked off your fall to do list is not the stuffing you should be thinking about. It is exactly now that you should be evaluating what you are storing.
"Every item comes into my house with my permission and I ALLOW IT to stay." - Peter Walsh
Pretty powerful. And pretty scary because it makes one accountable for all your things. So how do you figure out if it really has value to you? Take the one second test. When you look at it, do you have a positive or negative emotional attachment to it? If it's not 100% positive, it goes.
When you don't subtract items, the tendency is to stuff it someplace. There are all sorts of "black holes" in which to store our stuff - closets, garages spare rooms and basement. There is an entire industry wiling to store your stuff for you - for a price of course.
Are you putting things away for next season? or stuffing them (in organized containers)? Enjoy stuffing for dinner. Not in your home.
To your most peaceful self.
