I’ve been decluttering my life for months. It started long before I moved to Wyoming when I read a few books that gave me some motivation (Ruth Soukup is one of my favorite authors). Then my husband and I watched a documentary on NetFlix about the minimalist lifestyle. After that, I read a few articles. The next thing I knew, we were decluttering every corner of our house.
I will say that I am much more obsessed with this approach than my husband is. While he is greatly on board with the less is more philosophy, he tends to get much more emotionally attached to things than I do.
When you start decluttering your life, people often begin to wonder what is wrong with you. We had a few friends back in Nevada ask us if we were hard up for cash or if something had happened that they weren’t aware of.
Nope, none of that. We just wanted less clutter.
