Decluttering for More Space and Freedom

Have you heard of Marie Kondo and her decluttering method?

Minimalism has been trending for several years now. This movement, which promotes a return to the essentials, is appealing because of its simplicity and the feeling of freedom it provides.

If you are preparing to move into a new space, this transition is an opportunity to make an assessment of the belongings that you really use and that can support the new life that awaits you in your new home.

Bringing only the things you value into your new condo is a recipe for happiness as you begin your new life at Eclipse!

How to Declutter

Marie Kondo, the world's top decluttering expert, launched the minimalist movement in 2011 with her book The Magic of Tidying Up. Since then, decluttering has been the latest trend, and her book has become the ultimate reference for home organization.

For those of you who will soon be moving into a sleek and modern new condo, such as the luxurious Eclipse development, this change is the perfect time to carefully select the items you will bring with you.

According to Marie Kondo, the first step is to visualize your new space and how you want to live in it on a daily basis: refined, minimalistic, and surrounded only by objects that support your new luxurious and hassle-free lifestyle.

Next, it's about taking each of your possessions in your hands and asking yourself, "Does this bring me joy?" If the item you are holding brings you joy, is practical, and fits your new reality at Eclipse, take it with you. Do this with all your objects, clothes, furniture, and keep only those objects that you use and bring you happiness.

This powerful and liberating process will help you carefully choose the right items for your new condominium reality. Everything that was associated with taking care of the land, the pool, the kids can go: think freedom and luxury!

For those items that we value sentimentally, such as family photos and items that belong to the children, ask your now adult children to come and get the belongings that are meaningful to them.

This way, family memories can be passed on from one generation to the next.
