Does it spark joy?

Lately I’ve been wanting to declutter and organise our home. I have never considered myself a hoarder and always thought I kept things organised most of the time, but at the moment everything feels like it’s busting at the seams and filled to capacity. I’m on a mission to create some ‘space’, an empty shelf in the cupboard or just the space to lay things out rather then stacked in a particular way, which then creates more effort to keep tidy.

I love Marie Kondo’s strategy – simply ask yourself if the item ‘sparks joy’? if it doesn’t (and it isn’t a necessity) it’s time to get rid of it.

Time to put this delightful decluttering strategy into practice and see how I go.

The first bag of stuff is at the door ready to donate.

PS. I also love these 5 minute decluttering tips

A while ago I
sorted my jewellery and started the search for the ultimate solution.

The criteria was:
– it had to be pretty to look at but functional
– simple to use and keep tidy
– easy to see at a glance what I’ve got
– a way to keep everything untangled

Finally, after much thought and many Pinterest searches, I found the perfect solution.

These square frames were leftover from a unfinished project from many years ago. The finishing touches are lacking in the frames as they were originally intended to be covered in fabric, but the odd coloured timber adds a kind of dimension and the staples add to the rustic charm.

I simply screwed in some hooks evenly spaced along the inside of the top edge and hang my favourite necklaces on them creating a very practical and effective solution and as a bonus has provided some functional art to the blank wall.
