Considering I’ve had seventeen — that’s not including extended trips back to Ireland — house moves in Bogotá since I started living and working here in early 2012, one would think that I’ve become a master of the art of decluttering.
OK, as a single man with a backpacker’s mentality of sorts, I’m probably better than most at keeping material acquisitions to a minimum.
Nonetheless, I do think I can become more efficient at binning what are essentially unnecessary possessions. I could, quite literally, detach myself from many items I currently hold on to and probably feel much for doing so.
Such decluttering was the theme of the first hour of the Tuesday 02 August 2022 edition of Nihal Arthanayake’s show on BBC Radio 5 Live. Having touched on this topic in a 2013 blog post, All that you can’t leave behind, I lent my two cents’ worth to the conversation.
