Letting go isn't losing...

Apr 02, 2024

Let's break it down in simpler terms with a focus on your bathroom clutter. Think about it like this: your bathroom is that one room in your house where you get ready in the morning and maybe unwind at night. It's full of stuff you use every day, like your toothbrush and towels, but also, if you're like a lot of us, it's got those things you bought and never really used. Maybe it's a fancy face cream that promised miracles or a bath bomb collection you swore you'd indulge in.

Why we hold onto stuff we don't use:

So why do we keep holding onto these things, especially when they take up space? Often, it's because we think about what we spend on them. You might think, "Well, I spent good money on that face cream; I can't just toss it!" That right there is what you call a "sunk cost." It's money you've already spent, and no matter what you do, you're not getting it back by keeping the cream sitting there.




Letting go isn't losing:

Here's the deal: letting go of these things isn't the same as admitting you wasted your money. Instead, it's about taking back your space and getting rid of the clutter that's not adding anything to your life. Whenever you open your bathroom cabinet and see that cream you never use, it's a little reminder of a decision you wish you'd made differently. That's not a great way to start your day.

What to do instead:

Imagine your bathroom with only the things you love and use. That's totally doable. Start by looking at each item and asking yourself: "Do I use this? Do I love it?" If the answer's "no" to both, it might be time for it to go. For things that are still good, like that barely-used face cream, think about giving it to a friend who might love it. That way, it's not wasted, and your bathroom starts to become a bit more of a clutter-free zone.

Embrace the space:

Once you start clearing out the stuff you don't use, you'll notice something cool happening. Your bathroom starts to feel more relaxing. It's easier to find what you need, and those mornings or evenings in there start to feel a bit more spa-like, even without the fancy products.

The big picture:

Getting rid of bathroom clutter is about more than just making space on your shelves; it's about changing how you think about what you own. It's about recognizing that the value of your space and peace of mind is way more than the cost of things that just don't fit into your life anymore. So, take a look around your bathroom. What's really serving you, and what's just taking up space? Remember, letting go of clutter isn't about losing; it's about gaining a space that truly feels like yours.
