Clutter is something on my mind right now.
I want so badly to be a clean and organized person but I just can’t figure out how to work myself into that box, you know?
Growing up, my mother would never let me throw anything out – everything would have some sort of use someday. And while I can appreciate not being wasteful, sometimes donating stuff that you obviously don’t need anymore is a good thing!!
Becoming aware of the clutter is the worst part for me. I woke up a couple days ago and was just appalled by the state of my room and my fridge and my cupboard. My roommates are clean freaks and it makes me feel like garbage seeing their pristine everything while I’m drowning in my crap.
I don’t really know how to fix it though, that’s my problem. I’ve tried watching a bunch of videos about decluttering but I can’t shake the mindset that my mother burned into me that I’m going to seriously regret giving something away. I really want to be organized; organization is the dream. Or at least being proud of my room when guests come over. I think I want to try out some of the tips that a couple youtubers talked about so I’ll give you updates on that I think? We’ll have a little, attempted, cleanup mini series!
Maybe? No promises. We’ll see
