Do you have stuff around your home that you love but rarely use? Stuff that’s on the verge of becoming clutter?
Clearing the clutter to use what you have is good Feng Shui.
Use your imagination to put your close-to-discard items to work in a practical way that honors their history and keeps them in your life.
Here’s an example from my own kitchen cupboards.
I own some clear plastic dessert dishes, perfectly nice, but they were hiding on a shelf high in a kitchen cupboard.
Although they’re lovely, I knew I’d never serve dessert in them.
I wondered, rather than throwing these out, or giving them away, is there some other use I might make of them?
It didn’t take long to realize that they were perfect for holding thumbtacks, rubber bands, and other miscellany in my office. So now I have three containers — that are small, attractive, and look great together — for otherwise unsightly stuff, sitting on my office bookshelf.
What finds do you have in your home? Take a look around… what do you need? What do you already have? Could their functions possibly match?
