When my Mum passed away I inherited many of her old books. Well… – when I say I inherited them I actually rescued them from being thrown out as it seemed such a shame to throw out such lovely old books!!
But now they fill up two shelves of my bookshelf and I wonder if I should get rid of them. Some of them I cant as they have my Mums name in them as they were her schoolbooks, or a notation to her as they were given as a gift. But most of them are just old (probably boring) books. I doubt any of them are valuable first editions so not worth anything except sentimentally to me.
What do you think I should do?
One Bite at a Time – supporting each other to tidiness and order….. That was my original inspiration for a blog…… But then I thought that could get pretty boring to write and read – especially considering my ability to procrastinate. So after writing a few posts and considering the direction my posts were going I decided that this affirmation – Take One Bite at a Time – could apply equally to my life as well as the clutter in my home! Being a woman of a certain age, my desire to declutter my home could also be a sign of a desire to declutter and simplify my life – possibly as you start to recognise that you are mortal and that there is less life left to be lived! So this blog will be about decluttering our houses but it will also be about decluttering and simplifying our lives. There are so many of us that are hoarders and live amongst our mess and disorder. We crave a tidy house where we can find everything when we want!! But there are also many others who want to make sense out of our changing lives. We are here to support each other to get our stuff sorted!!
