Getting rid of 100 things

 I did Yoga this week, from a Yoga with Adrienne video about “Making Space”. After a bad night’s sleep I wanted to make space in my head and stretch out my body. Afterwards I also had the desire to make space in a physical sense. 

We both returned home this week probably bringing in about 1000 things into our small apartment. This includes clothes, Christmas presents, toiletries, chocolates, tea, shoes, slippers and a laptop.

 As a result of this and our swift departure from Hong Kong our place was a state. Coming across lots of decluttering videos on YouTube I began a tidying frenzy of getting rid of a hundred things. These included.
