Finally took the big step of moving a large storage unit out of my bedroom. I cleared its contents back when I was off work, but it has been stood there empty since. It’s now on the landing, waiting to go to a jumble sale in a couple of weeks. The space vacated looks enormous, completely altering the sense of proportion within the room. Not only does it look better but I’m struggling to remember what I actually kept in it. It’s astounding how we fill our lives with so much stuff. There’s still a long way to go in my efforts to simplify my life, and my belongings, but saying goodbye to that unit was an important move in the right direction.
Sunday’s cash spent: £5 towards a collection for a friend’s new baby.
