I could launch into a massive decluttering effort, but I know it would end in frozen indecision and stuff-shifting: moving things from one place to another instead of throwing them away. I know it sounds contradictory to start a Less Waste project by throwing things away, but I feel a need to work on the Declutter and Simplify project at the same time, to make space to breathe, as the Japanese say.
Anyway, I'm throwing things away as I encounter them. This morning I threw away toiletries that I don't use. I wish I could recycle them but they're all in plastic containers.
