I am a firm believer that we MUST periodically go through our clothes and discard what no longer belongs in our wardrobes.
Anything that needs mending, is ripped or stained or no longer fits should definitely go. Items that are still in good condition but are no longer worn should be donated to charity or perhaps given to a friend. If you happen to have a resale or consignment shop in your neighborhood, any “like new” items that you have can possibly bring in a few extra dollars!
TIP : Hanging your clothes “likes with likes” (skirts together, tops together, jackets together, etc) with all items facing the same direction + using the same style of hanger for each item will give your closet an instant facelift! ( I really like using these wooden hangers from IKEA 😀)
• D E T O X • The final part of my blog series 'Detox for the New Year' is now up and in this post I'm looking at simple ways to declutter the spaces in which we spend a lot of our time in order for us to feel calmer, more relaxed and at peace. A busy, chaotic environment leads to feelings of anxiety and stress. Read my top tips for detoxing your space now. Just click the link in my bio to take you straight there. 🏠🏢🚗☮️ •
Minsgame jour 11 (on rattrape le retard petit à petit dans le #minsgamenaturellementgreen ! 🙈) : aujourd'hui je fais le tri dans les vêtements ! Je n'en ai pas tant que ça mais il y en a tellement que je ne met jamais et qui prennent de la place pour rien dans le placard... Les 11 dont je me sépare aujourd'hui sont ✔ un pull acheté il y a tout juste un an au Veggie World, que j'adore mais que j'ai du mal à mettre avec les vêtements que j'ai
✔ un pull acheté il y a des années, je l'aime beaucoup et je l'ai pas mal mis mais il est trop court, je ne suis pas à l'aise dedans
✔ un t-shirt qui a 6 ans à quelques jours près et qui m'a suivie dans de nombreux moment marquants de ma vie. Je le gardais plus pour les souvenirs qui l'accompagnent qu'autre chose, donc je m'en sépare.
✔ un body qui ne me va pas vraiment et que je n'ai pas mis depuis plusieurs années, mais que je gardais quand même parce qu'on sait jamais qu'un jour il m'aille miraculeusement...
✔ un top blanc et un top noir complètement détendus et abîmés
✔ une paire de chaussettes trouées de mon copain
✔ deux chaussettes solitaires, d'étendues et trouées qui n'ont jamais retrouvé leur âme soeur. Toutes les chaussettes seront envoyées à @chaussettesorphelines pour être recyclées. Je pourrais développer sur cette association dans un autre post si ça vous intéresse ! 👌
✔ deux paires de collants filés qui seront envoyées à @swedishstockings pour être recyclées 👌
Les vêtements encore en état seront vendus, probablement sur vinted. En attendant si vous en avez repéré un qui vous fait de l'oeil, n'hésitez pas ! 😉
I wanted to place a focus on this card. It is my favourite message and one that I feel, can make a difference in one's life. I have been putting it to practice often and I can see the changes. In this day and age, in many places around the world, especially North America there has been a major focus on material consumption. Accumulating things we don't need has turned into a hobby...why? Perhaps there is a fear of not having enough or missing out. It is impossible to walk into a household and not see little trinkets here and there, mountains of magazines or books already read, an excessive amount of clothing "just in case" and random "i'll fix it later" items lurking in a corner somewhere. My favourite one is "I might use this someday". This one hits home for all the creative people...and I was one of them. This card is asking us to create more simplicity in our life by clearing out our space and things that no longer serve our highest good. It is the main message for 2018! Everything carries an energy. If we have too much going on around us, this can also create a state of confusion and stress in our souls. Have you noticed your environment when your in emotional or mental distress? Your room mirrors your soul. Walk around your home or office and ask yourself how every item affects you. Does it inspire or make you feel drained? You would be surprised to know that certain items of your past can hold you back. Perhaps you can find better ways to organize and place items into their own category in separate cabinets or boxes. Once you clear the way, you will lift the energetic blocks and notice more prosperity and abundance to flow your way. You will even start to think more clearly and understand what it is that you need to focus on next. You will notice the shift of new energy that has taken place. Afterall, it is the simple things that matter most. Happy Feng Shui!
A lot of products given away today
Step daughter's house burned down last Sunday or so and they lost everything..
Skin care items, makeup, and brushes..
Just something she will use since I haven't used those, I had put em in a box and didn't use because I have my regular items I use already separate.. I know what I had put in the bags & everything is new so no contamination done👌
She really liked it all. Felt good to do something good to help out a love one whenever they are down n out.. She had a beautiful smile when I was going through it n showing her new stash..😘
Have you done any good for someone else that you usually don't see or talk to?🙌
She had said Ty for the prayers from everyone!! #alexanderiadodson#declutter #💋 #giveitaway#willgetusedtoit#gone#givenaway#decluttering#notdoneyet#nogerms#behappyalways#blessed
Been raining since morning, so I decide to stay at home and do some major cleaning. Dusting, polishing my cabinets and rearranging my books. .
I only keep few books I like to read again. Only a few. The rest I let them go. In the language of @mariekondo , i kept only books that ‘spark-joy’. Why? I just don’t like clutter. My space is quite small. Also, why keep good books in a shelf when others can enjoy and read them instead. What about you guys? Do u collect all your books? How many times did you find or make the time to re-read them again? Hah, exactly! ✌️🤗
I’ve taken a little extra annual leave over the holidays this year so I could get stuck into sorting out things at home...2017 was a busy year and there were lots of things left to ‘do later’, which was really starting to stress me out! It was great to get stuck into all of those jobs...I did a massive declutter...and felt like a weight had been lifted with every thing that went out the door...I’ve making a conscious decision to evaluate everything that comes into my home now...I realised I didn’t need to be more organised, I just needed less crap to organise! It’s working so far...I even avoided the Boxing Day sales!!! It’s not just the physical stuff I’m clearing out though...seriously evaluating my habits, commitments and even the relationships that don’t add value to my life. 2018 for me is not about making resolutions, it’s about living with intent and spending time with people and doing things that bring me joy. What are your plans for 2018? Anyone else on the same path this year? K xx #declutter#intention#joy#newbeginnings#thelifestylecollectiveaus
Get ready for your guests NOW, before they descend on you this summer! Put together a tray with some basics: fluffy towel, unisex slippers, glass carafe & drinking glass, a tag with your WIFI password, toothpaste, & bamboo toothbrushes. When guests are on their way, add water, some snacks & a vase of flowers or greens & you will be nominated the best host in the neighborhood! One more tip: store the tray with everything on it inside a closet or in an under bed container with a lid to make set up a breeze. @212concept #JanuaryGetOrganized#Goals
Este mes tengo la intención de hacer limpia general de todo en casa. Si bien el año pasado empece con este proceso todavía me falta mucho por hacer. He leído que todo el cambio puede tardar hasta año y medio o mas. Todo depende del tiempo que se dedique a organizar, la habilidad para dejar ir cosas que ya no nos hacen felices y que cumplieron su proposito en nuestra vida. Vale la pena dedicarle tiempo que al final nos va a dejar un hogar con energia que fluye y hasta espacio para ideas mas claras en nuestra mente. Los niños gozaran de espacios mas libres para juego y creatividad. Despidiéndome de las cosas, dando las gracias por haberme acompañado en algún momento de la vida y desear que sean de buena ayuda para alguien mas. #bienestardia16#limpezadetodo#declutter#declutteryourlife#decluttering#freespace#newideas#creatividad#paz#simplicity#simplicidad 💡💫☀️#limpiezadelalma#limpiezadecasa#limpiezademente
This week I’m a bit under the weather so I’m staying in and giving my writing studio an overhaul. Taking down this bulletin board that has been up for years and years and plan to transfer these sweet memories to a scrap book. Making room for a giant mind map for my memoir project, clear thinking and new ideas. Adding a chaise so I can be more writerly, journal more and channel my inner @daniwriter 😊 I love her chaise posts. 💗 Even though our home was fine during the Thomas Fire, I’m motivated to realign my life with my values and live the life I imagine and dream of (to paraphrase Thoreau). Grateful to have a home to clean.
