Mindfully Letting Go


Let's talk a little bit about decluttering and getting rid of excess stuff that serves no purpose and doesn't really do you any good. Let's start with the kitchen pantry. This is a good place because you can usually find expired food items, foods you don't use or really want, and more.

While going about a declutter phase in the pantry, we noticed 42 boxes of tea. Various tea blends - chamomile, honey infused, sniffle free tea, Morning Bliss, green tea, black tea, Ayurvedic tea, etc. You get the idea of what this looks like. Crazy and unnecessary! What should you, would you, could you do? Declutter!

Starting in the pantry, shelf by shelf, take out all items and place them on the counter. Look at the cans, bottles and boxes. Separate the food items into these three categories: use often, don't use/need, might use/need. Get out a box or bag and put all the "will never use this" into the bag. Then wipe down the items you will use and those you think you might need, placing them neatly in the pantry. Think about which items needs to be tossed (expired) and which can be brought to the local food shelf.

By taking one cupboard at a time, you will slowly but surely declutter the kitchen. Do this with drawers as well. You will be surprised at how easy this is once you get going. When you chop (no pun) this task into parts - one cupboard/drawer at a time, it helps make a big project seem "smaller". After you might realize what we noticed - we love being in the kitchen. We seem to cook more. The pantry is easy to navigate and everything in there is used. We eat more at home.

You can use this approach as you continue to other household rooms. Getting rid of stuff you don't need and don't use moves the energy. You actually create more space for abundance. "Space abundance" that will serve you at this time, now.
