I love lists. Don’t you? That immensely satisfying feeling as you cross off the things you have done. Decluttering is perfect for list makers. You can break up the clutter by room, by cupboard, by person, by subject area. Oddly enough, I have done none of these things. I have just started in one part of the house and worked my way round, over and over again. Then I came across this blog by Joshua Becker 101 Physical That Can Be Reduced In Your Home . Oh the joys, I am so doing this today. I have already crossed off those things I have already reduced to the bare minimum or we don’t have. But so much more to go. I’m all fired up and ready to give the remaining clutter the heave ho.
Could you take this list round your home? How much could you cross off today?

I’m totally going to do this list! Thanks so much for sharing it!
De-cluttering is something that I really need to have a go at – I have way too much clutter. But I don’t think I could get rid of my craft supplies even if I’m not using them right now. But then crafts are a hobby of mine. They are stored away in a nice box though!
I got rid of over 70% of my craft stuff and now I craft a whole lot more than I used to because I am no longer overwhelmed by choice and I don’t have to wade through boxes and jars etc to find what I want 🙂
Hmmm… some of these are worth getting rid of….hard as it will be!
I just printed out a copy of the list and will get to it when I get home. This looks like a fun little challenge!
