Do you struggle with decluttering? If so, you’re in good company. I hated decluttering. I love my stuff! But I realised that my stuff was literally costing me money after travelling with my family for 15 months and paying nearly $4000 in storage fees.
My husband and I decided to downsize our house to a smaller home after we returned from travelling. We reasoned that we’d lived well in cruise ship cabins, hotel rooms and small European apartments, so we didn’t need a whole lot of space.
Then we opened up our storage unit and our idealist hopes were deflated. We moved into an 860 square foot duplex, after living in a 1300 square foot home with a separate garage and shed. To say we were overwhelmed with stuff is an understatement.
