This was harder than I expected!
1-7. newspapers and magazines (recycled)
8-11. shirts (to donate)
12. purse (to donate)
13-17. books (to donate)
18. save-the-date bookmark from my cousin’s wedding… TWO years ago (trash)
19-20. worn out undergarments (trash) 11 months ago
My goal was to purge 10 possessions each day for 10 days. I’m already two days behind! I’ll aim for 20 today and 20 tomorrow to catch up.
I’m just so dang sick of the clutter in my home! I have too much stuff. Some days I wish I could just sell/give away/throw out just about everything and move back into a studio apartment. I know, of course, that I would just reacquire many of these tossed items at a later date and just it wouldn’t make any sense, economically.
Things to toss out? Clothes I don’t wear (or shouldn’t wear) anymore. Books and magazines I’ll never read again. Old mail. Random trinkets I’ve held on to for sentimental reasons, but for which I’ve forgotten why they’re sentimental (ha). 11 months ago
