  1. I decluttered a top recently that I’ve had for 5 years, in the closet, tags on, unworn. It was a gift from someone who passed away. I felt guilty for not wearing it as it did not fit well, but it was a reminder from someone who was gone and whom I would never get another gift from. The other day I began to put more and more thought into it and realised that it was time to let go.

  2. My items are a Blue Tooth device for my cell phone and a lens device to clip on my cell phone. I have decided they just aren’t needed.

  3. Well I had an unexpected declutterment (is that a word?) – my husband threw out the wrong computer hard drive, so my personal computer hard drive which was sitting there waiting to go to the technician, no longer exists.

    • I nearly decluttered the husband in response.

      • I’d have been tempted too. Ackkk! Now what will you do? I hope you had everything saved elsewhere.

        • I think I have the majority on portable hard drives but I really don’t know. I am excruciatingly thorough when it comes to such things (I have a background in archiving) so this really had me hyperventilating.
          There is nothing I can do. I am trying to tell myself that I can’t miss what I don’t know I am missing.

          Actually, I am trying not to think about it at all.

          On the upside……I now have a surplus monitor, keyboard and mouse.

          • You could always buy a new hard drive. Though it might be cheaper to just buy a new computer.

            • Deb J – I think I will go laptop this time. I think a compact and mobile option will give me more options for the future. It also means the office desk etc will be obsolete.

              • Sounds like a great idea. I have a laptop and it’s wonderful to have it to take with me wherever I go.
