My husband started saying that, “One day, I’ll come home and there won’t be anything left”.
I know he’s joking, but it’s interesting to see, that after I got rid of huge amounts of stuff in the last few weeks, he felt like going through his own stuff.
He’s never been unorganised or hoarder-like in the first place, but the other day, we got rid of lots of his clothes, the usual bits and bobs, that nobody really needs and surprisingly, parts of his vinyl and cd collection (he will sell those to a record shop).
As you can see, this whole decluttering journey can be quite infectious to those around you and most important of all, I didn’t have to push my lifestyle onto him at all.
He just saw how nice and decluttered everything is and that’s what made him want to go through his own stuff.
It’s a win-win situation.
Today, I got rid of:
- A picture of a boat that we had in our bathroom
- a storage box with bits and bobs incl. 20 pens, 3 battery operated candles and other stuff I can’t even remember
- a toy farm
Do you have problems living with someone, who is not into your decluttering journey? If so, what is the problem?
