It is obvious from my Internet history that my key areas of interest are travel and minimalism. I like to travel light and keep things simple but somehow I still manage to have an apartment full of stuff.
Unsurprisingly this is not a situation that I’m happy with and I have made periodic attempts to declutter. This is now rather more urgent though as I am about to embark on a semi-nomadic lifestyle and it is time for me to get rid of everything (well, almost everything) I own. And that’s kind of overwhelming.
Someone suggested to me that I should just let my friends take over as they could be more objective. But I think that this is something I need to do myself. Deal with all the memories attached to my stuff whilst trying to avoid the self-criticism that I spent so much money on things I clearly don’t need.
When it’s done, I know it will be a relief, I just can’t figure out where on earth to start. The thing I need to focus on though is that it doesn’t really matter where I start, I just need to start somewhere. And then, when it’s done, I can head off to create new memories that don’t clutter up my physical space.
