Yesterday someone in one of my decluttering groups posted asking if anyone wanted to have an accountability partner for today for decluttering the kitchen. I said I wasn’t kitchen’ing, but would totally love that for another area.
I hadn’t decided where yet, I just knew I wanted some tangible momentum. I love all the mindset growth, and getting the previously hard “to do” things done, but I’ve been focusing on maintenance decluttering, so new progress has been lacking.
Today I decided to do some behind the scenes decluttering. These two drawers end up collecting all the things. I don’t want spaces like that.
I committed to accountability, so off I went. Three grueling hours later I was finally finished.
I threw some stuff away and put other things in a bag for donations. A lot of stuff is just going into a box to work on later–the paper clutter and the memory things.
I didn’t have the mental energy to go through it efficiently. Some days I’m just not going to be able to purge the way I want to. I have to remember progress over perfection.
Honestly, by the time I finished today I was too exhausted and drained of energy to enjoy the progress. I’ll get there.
