I love a good decluttering process. However, I find that the only thing which really ruins the post-de-cluttering joy is the disposable solutions of all unwanted goods. It feels terrible when you have piles of clothing, furniture, books or gifts which no longer spark joy in your life and you need to give them away. And while it feels so good to walk through a clean and clutter-free home, the excess of stuff left over always makes me feel ungrateful.
Gradually, I’m learning that through my own de-cluttering process, I actually have the ability to share my unwanted goods with people and families who do want them. One man’s trash truly is another’s treasure.
So this blog post is all about these disposable solutions which encourage guilt-free de-cluttering!
