Less might actually be more.

Uncluttering
We are in this world drowning with possessions, we keep buying and accumulating more stuff. We do not have the opportunity to discard our things. Early this year 2017, we start to segregate some of the unwanted clothes. We took stock of my wife’s bags and we decided that we need to let go of those that she does not need. 

Please support by helping us to buy some of the stuff, visit here:

I am guilty of buying too many books and have more than thousands of ebooks in my hard disk. There is no way I will finish reading them in my lifetime. I am hoarding them like the drake hoarding the gold in the Hobbit movie. 

We are currently living in a 1550 sqft Executive Apartment HDB and this gives us the room to buy more stuff. We need to constantly remind ourselves not to buy unnecessary stuff to clutter the house. 

Maybe in ten years time, we should move to a smaller HDB flat and design the house as a minimalist concept.
