Lets get rid of that stuff!


(This post is part 3 of a 3 part series.

Part 1 : Can Catholics KonMari?

Part 2 : Catholic Minimalism)

So then, how is a Catholic to relate to her stuff?

With Charity

“Charity” is the virtue by which we love God for His sake alone, and others solely for the sake of Him.  Simple. But this is the last virtue ever perfected, and only the holiest saints practice perfect charity this side of heaven.


Here are the 7 questions I like to ask to discern if keeping an object is loving God… Or if I should chuck it!


C – Is it Clean?

H – is it Humble?

A – am I called to offer it in Atonement?

R – is it Required?

I – is it Inspiring?

T – is keeping it Trusting God?

Y – am I Yoked to it?


Watch the video for more of an explanation about each question!

One thought on “Catholic Decluttering – pt 3”

  1. This is so clever and so Catholic! After new flooring forced me to declutter last year, I realized how much better I felt by getting rid of my junk. I have continued the process ever since. Seems like the more I do it on a regular basis, the more honest I can be about things and my attachment to them.
