For the last six months I have been making a concerted effort to reduce overall clutter in my home. I found that over the years my husband and I have accumulated “things.” Our kids have done the same. Much of our things are completely unnecessary, frivolous, and have become clutter. So each day I set out to get rid of ten items in my home, no matter the subject or importance, or lack thereof, of those items. Today is considered the day of no clutter, this week is a week of no clutter, all in honor of the book release of Year of No Clutter by Eve Schaub.
What I found in my quest to reduce clutter was what have I used in the last year? six months? the last hour? During that quest I found items that could be sold, donated, give to friends and or family that could put the items to good use. What better way to reduce clutter than to profit, someway, where someone received benefit.
About Year of No Clutter
The hilarious author of Year of No Sugar, Eve Schaub, returns with her new memoir, Year of No Clutter, to tackle the issue of “things.” Specifically, the 576-square-foot room in her house that is overflowing with stuff she can’t bring herself to throw away, like her fifth grade report card and pieces of plaster wall stuffed in a box.
Year of No Clutter is more than the tale of how one woman organized an entire room in her house that had been filled with pointless items, it’s a deeply inspiring, and frequently hilarious, examination of why we keep stuff in the first place, and how to let it all go.
