Roadmap: Give Up Yer Aul Tings


Posted 2 weeks ago in More

Does it spark joy?’ is perhaps the best known catchphrase of recent times. Marie Kondo’s Netflix series brought the concept of decluttering to the fore of middle-class considerations. At home Emma Gleeson is sparking joy with her Give Up Yer All Tings service.   

Having studied the psychology of our modern addiction to over-consumption, Gleeson realised how much she had amassed in her own life. “It took some time but once I had got rid of everything that I did not truly love or need, I felt so much lighter, freer and better able to enjoy my possessions,” she says.

“Let me be clear, I am NOT a minimalist! I love having a house full of books, pictures, trinkets and memories, believing material culture to be an essential element of how we express ourselves. But the difference is that I love everything I own, keep it all in good working order, and get rid of anything that has outgrown its use or charm.”
