This reminds me of something my mother says, when I say things like this. She says, live your life, and let your death take care of itself. ;)
For the last few years, I have been clearing out a bunch of clutter periodically. It is less extreme and easier to let things go, when I do it in small amounts.
I still find things like calanders from 2005, and old newspapers from 2003 etc, and clothes belonging to my daughter that she has long grown out of. I am currently clearing out under my bed. These things have been hiding under there for years, and great cloud of dust rise when I pull each item out.
Over the last couple of years, I have cleared out kitchen cupboards, hall cupboards, living room cupboards, and found ridiculous amounts of broken stuff that I throw out and stuff that I have long forgotten that I dust off and start using again. One of the items I found and started using again is a wooden tea box, with sections for different types of teabags. Has anyone else found something they started using again, that they did not realise they still have?
