Here come the HolidaZe

By David Hall  

As you read this month’s column, it’s beginning to look a lot like the HolidaZe are coming up fast.

No sooner does HALL-O-WEEN command our attention for home décor, pumpkin spice lattes, cinnamon sticks and oh so much candy, then THANKSGIVING preparations, and just around the corner are the most exciting fourth-quarter celebrations CHANUKAH, KWANZAA and of course CHRISTMAS.

So, what’s this got to do with clutter, letting go, and organizing? The answer is A LOT!

You see, as the holidaZe come into view, there is consumer-spending pressure put upon us like no other time of year. “The more you buy, the happier you’ll be,” seems to be the unspoken message. And each year, we seem to fall for the same mantra: “Shop ‘til you drop”. After all, your generosity is measured by how MUCH you buy, get, give and share, isn’t it? Or is there more? Is there more to the holidaZe than items?

This year, why not try something new, different, genuine and more personal?

Why not start NOW? Consider writing out old-fashioned cards. Especially if you have notecards clogging up your cabinet drawers (ahh, the decluttering aspect). Remember giving and getting cards? Well, why not bring back this age-old tradition? Share your love with meaningful, thoughtful notes. Share an old photo or two (more decluttering), reach out to your elders, reach out where you may have been remiss in seasons past. MAKE a card, MAKE a gift, MAKE way for the new season of JOY!

Look around your home. What have you got that can be repurposed, rebuilt, modified or just simply donated? (Donations express love and abundance too!!) Give the gift of you! Clear out the old and make room for more meaningful things to be brought forth. By clearing out the old stuff you’ve not truly appreciated, and regifting, donating, and/or discarding these things, you’ll feel lighter, brighter, and more benevolent too.

Take a tour of your garage, your kitchen pantry, your closet (for sure!) and make it a priority to gift things away. From now through the end of the year, be generous, tip well, and get rid of what no longer serves you.
