My room is looking a lot better, but I’ve still got a ways to go. I’m going to go home after class today and go through the top of my closets and get rid of anything I don’t need. That will clear up some room to organize stuff up there and get it off my floor. Yay, progress! (I’m probably going to consider this goal met when I get my room sorted out. I have a bunch of other stuff in storage or at my ex-boyfriend’s place which I just don’t have time to deal with for now.)

Well, I did great for a whole week, but I’ve since not had much time to get rid of more stuff this week. I really need to go through the top parts of my closets and look at what I can get rid of. Law school (and catching up before finals in particular) keeps a girl very busy. I’m also doing prep for Japan. So, anyway, I hope to get back on track with this a bit before my finals end so that I can leave for Japan with a least a partially cleaned room.
Well, I’ve managed, this week, to get rid of two bags of garbage and some boxes, as well as two bags of clothing/items to donate. I think I need to be even more brutal in the paring down process, but clothing is hard, because it all fits, and some of it is seasonal. I probably need to be more realistic about how many of my pairs of shoes I will actually be wearing. I should take each pair and see if there is an outfit I will wear them with, and if there is, whether I’m just more likely to wear another pair of shoes and get rid of them if they aren’t something I think I will realistically wear. It’s hard though. :P
To try and get through this goal, I think I’m going to work on it incrementally and set a goal to get rid of one bag of stuff per day… whether it’s garbage or clothes/items to donate.
