The idea of clutter being postponed decisions piqued my curiosity and caused me to take a deeper dive into my desires or aversions to tidying up.

Since I enjoy cooking I decided to de-clutter my fridge.

Checking and using only the freshest ingredients raised my spirits knowing that I was deciding to serve tasty, quality dishes to those I love.

  1. My mother had hording issues, so my childhood was spent in a house full of clutter. On a monthly basis, I attempt to identify any items in my ‘man cave’ that haven’t been used in a year. If they haven’t been used in over a year, books and DVDs are an example, I attempt to determine if I will ever read or watch them again. If not, I bring them to an organization that will put them to good use. My local library and Habitat for Humanity are two organizations that come to mind.
