Drawing inspiration from nature, particularly Autumn, we can adopt Autumn’s letting go approach within our homes. Autumn is the season that teaches us the beauty of letting go (decluttering) to make space for new growth to come.  Just as it whispers its message of change through the rustle of falling leaves, we can observe nature’s wisdom and declutter our home too.

Consider the items in your home that may have served their purpose.  These items are often stored in a cupboard or shed after their use. To be “used again” but “again” doesn’t happen. And now they are simply taking up space.


It may be an old bike, children’s indoor and outdoor toys they have outgrown, a half-finished project that isn’t going to be finished or an item you have upgrade but kept the “old one” for a spare.  Or you may have a mattress that’s seen better days. These items from the past may no longer be useful to you and could be taking up valuable space in your home.

There are also sentimental possessions that once held meaning. Possessions you enjoyed using but they no longer spark the joy they used to.  These may be clothes that no longer reflect your style (wardrobe decluttering) or books of topics you’re no longer interested in.
Just as Autumn sheds its leaves, it’s a perfect time to shed what no longer serves you.

By embracing the essence of Autumn, you can be encouraged to declutter and let go.  Letting go of the old creates space for new possibilities. So, as the leaves dance their way to the ground, let’s take inspiration. By decluttering your home, you are making room for the beauty of yourself and home to flourish.
