30 Before 30

Today I turned 26! I’m now officially closer to 30 than 20.

On my 19th birthday, a relative told me they were turning 30 soon and I laughed at how old they were. I couldn’t even imagine being 30, it seemed so old.

But I’ve come to realise that getting older isn’t a bad thing. It means you got to experience new things and life doesn’t stop just because you hit a certain age.

We should celebrate aging and embrace the new adventures.

Since I have 4 years before I turn 30, I thought it would be fun to create a little list of 30 things I hope to do before I turn 30.

Is Decluttering A Waste Of Money?

One of the comments that I often get on my decluttering posts is “throwing things away is a waste of money” or “how do I not feel like I’m wasting money?” and honestly, I get it.

When I first started my decluttering journey, I wanted to keep hold of anything that cost a lot of money because it felt like a waste to get rid of it. If I’d spent money on something, simply throwing it away or donating it felt like a waste.

That was until I remembered one little thing.

The money is already gone.

Whether I kept hold of that item or not, the money that I spent has already gone. It’s no longer in my bank account and it’s not coming back. Now I just have to decide if that item is worth the space and effort of keeping it.

How to Do a Brain Dump to Declutter Your Mind

What is a brain dump?

In its simplest form, a brain dump is simply taking all the thoughts from your mind and writing them down. It’s a quick way to declutter your thoughts and help you focus on what’s important.

6 Things I’ve Learned From Reading Anne of Green Gables

I completely fell in love with Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. You’ve probably read the books, watched a film adaptation or watched the Netflix series, Anne with an E before. If not, you will probably have heard of Anne of Green Gables before. It’s a classic!

The whole series teaches us some inspiring life lessons that maybe we have already heard but never thought much about, or perhaps we have just never considered before. Anne of Green Gables is full of insightful life lessons and I thought it would be nice to share some of them.
