Children require a lot of things from beds to clothes to toys and it can all add up. At one point our apartment was packed from top to bottom with junk because I thought that anything I had I might need one day. I kept everything!
Over time, as my first son became mobile and inevitably started getting into things, things would break. Instead of getting upset, I learned to see it as a blessing in disguise. No matter what I would still love my son, but the things he broke were only things.
My mindset changed and I began to see the broken things left behind by my toddler were merely involuntary de-cluttering! I started to let go of junk and my home is so much easier to maintain. I have also found that the things I have let go of, I usually don’t even miss them when they’re gone.
