The timing is perfect because Big Brother Big Sister will be in my neck of the woods on Monday to accept donations of clothing, toys or kitchen items. That certainly puts a smile on my face and I'd like to think on theirs as well. BBBS comes through our town on a monthly basis to accept donations so I hope to continue my decluttering on a regular basis. According to my Tyding up book, a time frame of a year is reasonable for achieving your goal. Seems reasonable to me.
I figure less clutter will lead to less time spent on housework and more time to stitch or knit or weave or read. That certainly puts a smile on my face 😍.
