I like to think I’m pretty good at decluttering and keeping stuff to a minimum. It’s one of the reasons boat life has been so easy and good for me. I like the way this writer put it – the bucket analogy makes perfect sense to me.
“Purge excess possessions — ruthlessly.
The more stuff you have, the harder it is to get and stay organized, because there’s less space and more laundry, more dishes and more to clean. As Tuckman said, “At some point, it becomes impossible [to organize] — you can’t organize 10 gallons of water into a 5-gallon bucket.”
More here – it doesn’t just apply to people with ADD.
