The Clutter is All in Your Mind

The Lunar New Year is nearing so it's time for the annual spring cleaning. So what are things we really need, and what the things we can donate to the needy or should toss away?

Many of us love to shop and often we ended buying things we like/want but do not need. And day by day these things start to clutter our space, shelves, cupboards, storeroom, and our mind.

Giving away or donating things we hardly use or don't really need is the step necessary for us to welcome newer and better things in our life. And not forgetting, "The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you."

Quotes on Simplicity

"Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."
- Lao Tzu

"Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life,
and the labors of life reduce themselves."
- Edwin Way Teale

"Frugality is one of the most beautiful and joyful words in the English language,
and yet one that we are culturally cut off from understanding and enjoying.

and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things."
- Elise Boulding
