While in my doctor's waiting room, perusing Ladies' Home Journal (May 2012), I came across an article about clutter. It presented a different strategy for decluttering. Instead of going through each and every item and deciding on what should stay and what should go, it suggested to try curating your stuff.
The article explained that curating was picking the gems from a collection and letting the rest go. It would almost be like a treasure hunt. How fun!!! The ultimate goal of curating is to keep your possessions to scale so they don't crowd you, oppress you, or burden you. Doesn't this make so much sense????
