I've found a new way of decluttering: replacing! Slow but steady I have been replacing all kind of things in my house. Like trading five mall fitting trousers for one expensive jeans. It is not as cheap as purging but certainly as effective for attaining a more simple & happy living environment.
Lately I have been searching through my photo collection. Since photography has been one of my main interests since I was a young teen I do have a LOT of pictures. Most of them are hidden in ugly unfinished albums or boxes. There are memories in there that definitely deserve to be seen.
So..I have been rephotographing them and putting them through instagram filters. Sounds time consuming but it was actually a really fun job to do, as long as you don't fall in the trap of wanting to make a perfect timeline of your life, but only choose those who speak to you or represent a certain memory the best.
I have been using printic (this is NOT sponsored, just an example ) because they make it possible to print directly from your phone. What I love best about them is that the prints come in a box of fifty photos, so that you are forced to choose only the best. It makes looking at your photos a way better experience. And all the ugly albums and boxes can be stored out of sight. Sweet & simple!
