Thanks for starting this thread, Bijou! I just discovered it.
I ruthlessly decluttered my kitchen of all the tools that I haven't used in a year. I am not looking at the empty spaces with an itch to fill them. The empty spaces are quite calming to me.*
Artist William Morris said, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
I've personally amended that to "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful. Bonus if it's beautiful."
Just my personal mantra that is setting me free in my own home.
I'm having a massive yard sale in May. My DH is getting rid of his/my hunting stuff, his ice fishing stuff and a few other things of his. I'm getting rid of my canning stuff, my wingadingdingy Francis book collection (in fact my entire library), all my unused kitchen tools (this is a massive amount of stuff), clothes I haven't worn in a year, office supplies unused for years, and actually the list could be endless.
*I think that's one of the reasons I enjoy looking at modern or transitional houses on www.Houzz.com
so much. The clean, uncluttered lines are very peaceful. Houzz has a fun app for phones or tablets and I'm creating the most interesting ideabooks with it!
