Short Takes: A Decluttering Tale, Told on Twitter

Louise's bus

From Louise Hornor, of Our Odyssey, whose storage space is quite limited since she lives in a converted bus:

12:34 PM Mar 6th
This afternoon's goal: set aside 10% of my clothes for charity. My drawers and closet are overloaded.

2:27 PM Mar 6th
Decluttering success! Of 176.5 items of clothing, 18.5 went to charity, 13 into garbage. Half items: single socks, bikini bottoms.

2:29 PM Mar 6th
I now have fewer than 150 items of clothing. That includes pairs of socks, outerwear, everything. Feels really simple and freeing.
