I couldn’t sleep, after a 3 hour nap. So, I went kinda manic. I started decluttering like a mad woman.
Found 5 Wal-Mart bags, and a huge tote bag full of stuff to donate. I went through my closet, my jewelry box, and my Expedit.
You would not believe the stuff I had. Brand new Graduation party stuff, (my youngest graduated college 3 years ago), brand new school supplies like crayons, glue, markers, etc,
(did I mention my youngest graduated college 3 years ago????),
jewelry I never wear, some of it I don’t think I ever wore, ( blue, and brown earrings are NOT purple!), assorted junks, brand new jewelry in the package, (how many pairs of strawberry earrings did I think I needed??? Seriously!), other party supplies, such as balloons, crepe paper, and balloon weights, (all brand new). (I know, that is the world’s longest sentence, but my blog… etc.)
I have already been through my stuff and donated many things, so how can I still have so much to declutter??
1. It’s brand new! I must keep it! It’s too good to give away!! (IS that 1 reason or 3? You decide.)
2. I might need it.
3. Laziness, not wanting to actually work on decluttering. Thank God for this blog, and being forced to do something, so I have something to post about!
4. I got it for a specific purpose, that occasion has come and gone, but a similar one might arise.
5. Need I go on??
So proud of myself! I did something useful instead of wasting the 2 hours on
my crack, I mean Facebook.
Only 2 hours??
Wow, it feels like it took hours, and hours, and hours! Instead of only hours. See how I fool myself? Yay, Tonight I just did it.
