I want to share this with you because it’s something that frees me.
We all have a lot of things. Many have too much. And we don’t know what to do with them.
It may be that top you’ve been wanting to wear but when you do, it doesn’t seem to suit you anymore. It can be that extra charger that reappeared after you thought went missing and so bought a new one.
I would like to share with you my experience in decluttering, not just the space but my life.
Some months ago, I started leaving things, big and small, in private and public spaces: a toilet cubicle, an empty seat in a restaurant, a park, etc.
The things are individually packed but of course I use used containers or plastic bags to be more environment-friendly. With the thing, I place a note that says: “Kung nakita mo ito, ito ay para sa iyo.” (If you see this, this is for you.)
I will never know who will pick up the found item nor will I see the response. Maybe it’s the janitress, maybe it’s a homeless person, maybe it’s someone who needs that particular thing I left. But that’s the point. I would like to give it out there without expecting anything. The only wish is: Hopefully the finder will have use for it.
My mind for many years now is in the declutter mode. If the stuff is saleable, I put it online to sell. If it’s something my friends would appreciate, I gift it. If it’s, I put it out there. 🙂
You see, when you declutter, you also give space for your mind to breathe. 🙂
