    I am so excited to renovate my home.Thrown away all the home furniture and stripped the dirty carpet..it’s like an building a home from scratch..

    I also started declutter as we decided to throw away any stuff which holds no purpose and also booked a truck individually for that..

    That’s when everything started:.

    I thought I had a simple home and not much stuff but trust me I disposed bags and bags of unused stuff,clothes ,torn rugs,utensils..I realized that maybe I am a hoarder..


    The most emotional part of decluttering was the memories..

    My kids baby clothes,Halloween clothes,my old clothes which got me million compliments,my first everything stuff,greeting cards,utensils…GOSH!! I broke down crying..

    I have watched tv shows of home makeover
    And people crying which amused me but when am in their position now..it was painful BUT such a sense of relief!!

    I had so much broken stuff dumped in the basement,garage and my backyard with broken chair..how did I even live this way!!

    Everything Thrown out…

    I cried so much as I missed my memories!But I felt so relieved ! I felt like
    Am starting fresh!!!

    even the air in my home feels pure now :)I am able to breathe!

    My beautiful zen home which is my dream will be ready in some Weeks..

    I always felt ashamed when people came home.Nobody judged me atleast to my face and were nice but I didn’t feel good to invite people over..now my beautiful home will make me feel different hopefully..

    I have discarded memories,people and stuff which serves me no purpose!

    I am starting a brand new life..with a new mindset..with more confidence..

    I am also planning to do pooja and do everything to bring more positive energy in the house..

    Wish me luck friends:) Sharing my happiness..I feel overwhelmed..

    Good luck and so happy for you Anika.
    I can feel the warmth and happiness in your post. It definitely gave you a great positive energy.

    I recently moved from an apartment to a new house and trust me, I threw lots of stuff. I threw an entire full size U-Haul truck full of things. I had only few boxes to transport to the new house. I trashed everything else and I was so surprised that I filled up the entire U-Haul truck full of things to throw away. The things which I am supposed to move to the house wasn't even filled half of that U-Haul truck. But the trash was. I moved only little and bought new things. And decided to be minimalistic.

    I thought I was having a small apartment with only necessary things. I wasn't and that taught me a good lesson.

    I even called the junk away company to take away my mattresses as I don't want to put the mattress in the trash.

    Though we feel bad by throwing this, but it definitely gives you positive energy and mind for sure.

    Keep us posted on this thread and keep sharing your happiness, ideas and thoughts. Good luck my friend.

    Home renovation is no joke I feel..though excited ..stress is undeniable.Plus am also decluttering..adding to it is kids,work etc..plus I could not workout or do yoga as there is no space..had a tub of icecream yesterday:)
    The wood for flooring is yet to come..my house looking like a stripped chicken lol and I feel so tired a lot lately..hubby too..

    Hopefully when things get started all will get better:)

    Funny thing is the more I declutter I realized I had more trash in the house than things :grinning:

    So many unwanted and unused stuff..
