Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.
~Wendell Berry

Today for Wellness Wednesday: decluttering, an activity which never fails to make me feel good. It's definitely time to do it again.

* There's a nice article on Becoming Minimalist about creative ways to declutter, which includes this tip:
The Four-Box Method. As we first set out on our journey to minimalism, this was the technique most often used in our home. As I set out to declutter an area, I brought four boxes: trash, give away, keep, or relocate. Each item in every room was placed into one of the four categories. No item was passed over. Each was considered individually. Some projects took an hour… others took days or weeks. But the technique and principles remained the same.

Excellent tips for an important job (or should I say "process").

Besides going through my clothes periodically, I make sure to remove an older shirt (for example) when I get a new one. This makes you look at your clothes more closely as to whether you really want them or not.
