Day 51: Five Reasons To Get Rid Of Clutter – Or Why I Want To Live In A Hotel | 100 things 100 days →
I want to think of arranging my house as if I live in a hotel. One of the best experiences in my life was living in England for a summer during college and having a whole bookshelf for about 10 books and a whole closet for half a dozen outfits — it felt decadent and right. And it was SO EASY to clean up!
But the best thing about the Firelight Lodge (or any hotel for that matter) is that we each checked in with only 1 suitcase each full of our favourite things.
And that has to be the single most compelling reason for getting rid of clutter that I can think of. Seriously, have you ever walked into a hotel room and thought:what this place is missing is a whole lot of my crap?
Sure, sometimes a comfortable bed or a sharp knife would be a pleasant addition, but do you miss your 46 tea towels or your laundry day underwear? Do you ever get a hankering to fix that broken flashlight you’ve been hanging onto?
I didn’t think so.
