Some people might have started their spring cleaning weeks ago but for me it is this week. This is the annual year-end cleaning and we are less than two weeks to the new year.
Spring cleaning is a tiring chore for me because of the big amount of clutter I need to get rid of. Why didn’t I throw this outdated stuff away earlier, I would always chide myself. Regret! Regret! A stich in time saves nine…all this ‘wisdom’ on hindsight!
Unless you are not a hoarder, it is a real challenge when it comes to spring cleaning and throwing stuff away. Many of us are hoarders to some degree and it is normal to be a small-time hoarder if there’s such a thing – just hoard some personal stuff for sentimental reason or things to bequeath to loved ones. I’m a 50% hoarder trying to be 10% , so that’s why throwing out white elephants is quite stressful for me.
This year one of my resolutions was to declutter and work towards minimalism. Paiseh to say I’ve only achieved about 20% . The things I find most difficult to discard are the hundreds of old photographs and tens of photo albums. My friend told me she reorganized her photos and kept four albums; the rest of her photographs she cut up and threw away. I have been gearing up for this scary action – cut up and throw photographs .
Wishing all happy sprng cleaning!
