This is taking much more effort than I thought. I think I like “stuff” too much.
Clothes given to friends: 5
Clothes in a box to be donated: 37
Bags of trash: 3
I still have a lot to do. I’m finding I’m a hoarder. I find safety in numbers and buy things in BOGO sales and hardly find myself using products until the bottle is empty. Take for example the Victoria Secret sprays I’ve had since college….why are they still around? And when did I truly need to buy 5 all at once? Makeup too…if I’m honest I only rotate through 10 items and have a lot of junk I never use. That’s going to go. Office supplies? Art Supplies? Those items are dangerous. I’ve got a problem with having too much but conversely, buying those items on sale is crucial otherwise they can cost me significantly more.
Goals for this week:
1. Clear the laundry baskets that are perpetually full of folded clothes. I either have space to hang them or they’re not worth keeping.
2. Organize my office and art supplies so they can be kept in one area neatly in sterilite drawers.
3. Weed out accessories. Yeah Claires earrings with animals, I’m talking about you. Yeah green tinted cheap stuff I shouldn’t be wearing around my neck or putting in my ears, I’m talking to you.
4. Work on putting things away immediately.
Taking time today to finish my Lysa TerKeurst book! Review coming soon.
I need to go through all my things and get rid of stuff too. I just have too much of it and takes too long for me to keep everything clean because of it.
