Declutter your key chain!

March 22, 2013
I often read blogs about decluttering. But there's one area that is sadly neglected when it comes to decluttering, and that is the keychain!

At a certain, unfortunate point in time, my keychain carried:

  1. my house key

  2. the key to my bike

  3. a key to our back door

  4. a key I didn't know, so I didn't dare to throw it out

  5. lots of messy remains of bygone keychains

  6. my car key

  7. a guardian angel that forgot to guard itself, which resulted in it losing its head

So when I felt this tiny fluttering of desire to declutter my keychain I didn't hesitate: I immediately started fanning the flames of this desire, until it became a full fledged desire to dó something!

Now I am the proud owner of a keychain that only has my house key on it. And because I believe I'ld be best suited for life in a castle I've attached my house key to a big, black key that looks like it can open any door! Tadaaaa!


What's on your key chain?

  1. I'm a huge fan of small, manageable projects I can do and feel accomplished. This one fits the bill! I'm pretty sure I still have the key to my high school locker lock on there somewhere...and a legless Princess Leia Lego minifigure. BTW, where did you get that awesome large key?

  2. It's funny that I come across this post because I've recently been really considering decluttering my keychain. I have way too many keys and other accessories that when I go to put my keys in my pocket, it's a huge bulge, which I'm sure isn't very appealing to look at. As of now I have my house key, my car key, my husband's car key, my work keys (3), a few of those bonus-buy/savings things (from the grocery store), pepper-spray and a couple of keychains to make it look somewhat presentable. It's just too much! I need to find a way to carry all the extra stuff with me, but not have it necessarily in my pocket. I think my goal for this weekend is to declutter my keychain, haha.
