Clutter-Free Easter Basket Gifts - A Bountiful Love

Clutter-Free Easter Basket Gifts

  For the past several weeks, we have been decluttering not only our clothes but our entire home. With the exception of our garage that will need a whole lot of energy and intentional decluttering, I think that we are learning a lot in this journey. I learned that I can function with a few pieces of clothing. And even if I have gotten rid of 50% of my clothing, I still wear the same pieces of clothing.  Back story first, I am a work-at-home mom with two school-age daughters. So, I can tell you that I do not need a whole lot of "work" clothes. I learned that our girls really do not care about how clothes they have! And sometimes, what I think would mean a lot to them (clothing or toy wise), doesn't actually mean anything to them. I was really surprised by how willing they are to narrow down their toys, shoes, and clothing. My husband Rob is an easy one, he can also function with a couple of jeans and a few shirts.

  We tackled this decluttering project on a weekend so everybody can be involved with the task. I was hesitant at first since I am not sure how our kids will react first. I think that it is important to explain why having too much stuff is not a way of life and how it can affect us both financially, mentally, and physically. If we are not careful, small purchases can add up to our expenses and add to the clutter. I do love the majority of the principles of the KonMari Method. We can not have things in our house that don't make us happy or as Marie Kondo would say..."spark joy".

  We have also decluttered our kitchen. We have a small kitchen with little countertops and very few cabinets. So having multi-purpose tools, gadgets, and small appliances will totally make sense. I think my next project will be replacing all of our plastic food containers with glass food containers. Now, with books! This is a hard one for me as I do love reading. Actually, we all love to read. But, we did it anyway. 

  There several ways to get rid of your stuff aside from donating it. if you have the time and patience (and space), you can sell it on eBay or Poshmark. Facebook Marketplace is also a good place to earn a little bit of moolah. You can also try apps such as Letgo or Mercari. I have also asked friends if they can use some of my girl's preloved clothing, toys, books. There are also Facebook groups (local groups) where you can post the items that you are willing to gift or give. As they say, "One man's trash is another man's treasure.

 Since decluttering, I am very careful now of what I bring into our home. The other day, we were strolling around TJ Maxx looking for a magnetic strip for my knives, I did saw several things that I like but do we actually need it? NO. I asked myself, will I be getting rid of this item next month or in the near future? Long story short, I came out of the store without a purchased item(s). Easter is fast approaching and this is one of the holidays that if we are not careful, small stuff or items can slowly creep back into our home. My husband and I decided that we will be intentional with our girl's Easter baskets.
