How Lockdown Ending May Impact My Clutter-Free Life

As we have now been released from the strictest rules, I have to ask 

What was the first thing you did when Lockdown ended?

I know many people booked in at the hairdressers and that would be why those of us who were a bit late (oops!) were offered earliest appointments sometime towards the end of May!

As I failed at getting my hair done, I chose to join the gym.

Like many others, I’ve been a bit of a Lockdown Lounger. What was muscle now resembles jelly and going for a run has been in the ‘too hard’ basket. So, after joining up online, off to Willesden Sports Centre I went. I was duly shown around the complex and how they are still set up to keep any chance of covid transmission to a minimum.

I had been a bit bemused by the fact that all the classes were all booked up. Honestly, I think I was a bit intimidated thinking that all the locals must be so fit that all the classes were full as soon as they were posted. However, I was somewhat relieved that this is because each class only has one participant, at this time. Then, I thought, how sad that is. That the camaraderie and mutual motivation that is usually the main reason for joining group classes will not be happening.

Anyway, what has that all got to do with being clutter-free?

Well, as I have been quite happily living my minimalistic lifestyle with minimal possessions for over 8 years, I now find that, if I want to take all the classes and actually get fit, I will need more than my singular pair of sweat pants or end up doing washing 3 x a week! 

Normally, I only allow myself to buy something new if the old one is to be thrown out.


This is extreme decluttering and I would never expect anyone else to live this way, but I have been actively NOT accumulating stuff, so to start to add to my things is quite a change in thought processes.

So, I will be heading to Decathlon for some extras. 

Wish me luck!
