Key #4 Don’t reclutter while you declutter
Decluttering is a complete waste of time if there is as much stuff entering your house as there is going out. Limit your purchases to the things you really have put a lot of thought into whether you will get good use out of it or if it really suits your needs. Don’t wonder aimlessly through the stores looking for stuff you didn’t know you wanted. And try to convince your friends and family not to buy you gifts unless they are consumable in some way.- Fresh flowers, chocolates, beauty treatments and the like.

My mother-in-law probably will think I have gone too far now but as cute as this bear is Liam gave it to me to declutter. It was a nice thought at the time but he is all better now.
5 Reflections of gratitude from the most frightening time of this year
- All the family and friends that kept in touch when Liam was hurt.
- Modern medicine- Something we often take for granted but makes a big difference to a lot of lives.
- All the health professionals who cared for Liam, aided and are still assisting in his full recovery.
- All of the prayers and well wishes of my readers and their families, friends and church groups during that awful time.
- Both my husband and I being able to give Liam our full attention during his entire recovery time – that is truly a privilege in this day and age. Planning for a rainy day really is a good idea.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow.
