Are you serious about decluttering?
Have you been thinking, even talking about decluttering your closet?
So, please tell us... Have you actually done any decluttering yet?
What have you removed from your closet so far?
Oh, I see, you’ve got rid of an old sock? Oh, and a bra that used to be white…a long…long time ago…?
Is that it?
Do you think that this is good enough?
Well, I know that you know the answer to this question, mon amie.
Don’t you think that, whenever we ask if something we’ve done is good enough, it is because, while we hope that it is, we know that it isn’t and we could have done better?
Well, my question for you today is: Do you or do you not want a decluttered and tidy closet?
I’m only asking because you’ve been making the right noises, nodding and saying that of course you’re going to do that decluttering tomorrow, this weekend, or next month, or at Christmas…And on and on it goes…And your closet is still a jumbled mess.
The problem is that you've been saying that you wish, you hope, you try, you think….
I, for one, wish that you would just stop doing that!
Yes, please stop wishing, hoping, trying, thinking about decluttering!
Instead, be serious about decluttering and just do it! That’s right, do it!
Don’t you know how a decluttered, tidy and organised closet can change your life? If you don’t believe me, listen to those who have done it and are now reaping the rewards.
