Although I have always got things organised in my home, I must confess there was a time in my life when I owned more than what I own today. But becoming a mother and 2 years later deciding to leave the corporate world so I could work from home while taking care of my son drove me to make space in my home for all the baby paraphernalia and for a home office. Even though the decision to purge came out of my desire to keep things organised in our home, I quickly realised that owning less also made my life easier.
