When I started decluttering my home at the beginning of this year, some things were obvious places to start. Clothing, of course. Toys, yes. I quickly moved on from these more obvious areas of clutter to kitchen items, bathroom products and linens. This past week I tackled greeting cards, and decluttered 170 greeting cards and envelopes from my home. I’m still not totally sure how I managed to accumulate that many blank greeting cards, but I have a few ideas. I know I received a large box of generic, blank cards from an aunt as a gift, and after having two babies I had purchased a couple of packages of thank you cards to send to friends and family after receiving thoughtful gifts for my children. I kept a few of the blank thank you cards for future use. If I were feeling some more radical minimalist tendencies during my decluttering the other day, I would have chucked everything without a look back. I’ll revisit the small collection of cards I kept toward the end of the year. Next, I’m off to tackle my small but unwieldy collection of gift totes. If anyone needs a large number of wine bottle gift bags, you know where to ask.
