Less is More

Friday, August 28th, 2009

I recently visited a home in Troy. Clutter was the challenge and much of it was childhood items. The owner saved these items in the belief that her children or grandchildren might want the items. Hanging on to things “just in case” is stagnancy. Truthfully, it is rare that an old pram, the stained wedding gown, or the old dolls, will be wanted.
My best advice is to ask them. If they say yes, give the item to them now. If no, donate it or sell it or trash it. Live with the items you love and use now!
