Inbound vs Outbound #24 – August 2022

The point of this article is to see what I’ve purchased versus what I’ve decluttered in the past month. The ultimate goal is to see if over time, I’m bringing more into my life than taking out. Also, I’m looking to see if the things I do bring in are adding more value into my life in the long run since I’m documenting when it’s arriving.

I started August thinking this would be the month I would be able to get some decluttering done. Particularly relating to some plants, and that didn’t completely go according to plan. I want to say September might be the month, since Back to School (even though it doesn’t apply to me anymore) usually makes me want to reset my life. But I don’t want to make any sort of promise in that regard. Especially if you’re reading next months update and you find that nothing has really changed.
