MAKE ROOM FOR MORE LIVING
Decluttering isn’t about living without stuff, it’s about living with intention and making room for the good stuff in life. Refocus on the things that make you happy, like the people that make you laugh! Decluttering is about making a choice about the lives we want to lead and having fun doing it… oh and making some pocket money in the process! #declutter #happyhomes #wellbeing
MAKE ROOM FOR HAPPY
Lots of things contribute to happiness, but stress is a biggie. UCLA Research shows clutter increases the stress hormone cortisol which affects how well you sleep, how well you can concentrate, focus and process information. Decluttering is about finding a balance between the stuff you have and the stuff you need to simplify life, reduce stress and make a little more room for happiness. Declutter and spark some happy by seeing your stuff reused - it’s good for you and good for the planet. #declutter #happyhomes #wellbeing
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Waste is growing six times faster than our population. Eeek! Buying and selling at a garage sale is a great way to reduce and think differently about waste. One garage sale on its own doesn’t make much of a difference, but when a community gets on board, good stuff translates into big outcomes. #australia #reuse #movement
