I can say that I am a quite a hoarder.  Looking at articles about minimalism makes me thing that maybe it's time to lessen and give away things I don't use.

Anyone has tips on how to start? to be honest thinking about it gives me a bit of anxiety since I am emotionally attached to most of the items I have.

Baby steps. Don't buy anything you don't need.  If you haven't used an item within a year, dispose of it.  You'll probably not use it anymore.  Like the others, start with a drawer, then move on to your table, etc.  You can do it :)

That's the thing, I always thing what if I will need it. Sometimes, I think I am a lost case.
But, I am thinking to sort my closet before the year ends.

^try reading Goodbye Things by Fumio Sasaki. It might change your mind set regarding the "just in case" things. ;)

^Thanks for the suggestion.   Nakakaengganyo talaga ang maaliwalas na bahay.  This weekend, I hope to start cleaning and sorting out our closet.  Nakakapanghina at nakakatamad kumilos kasi sobrang init ng panahon.  At least ngayong medyo umuulan-ulan na, medyo malamig na at hindi na nakaka-alibadbad kumilos
