So far my time off has been great. I'm trying to de-clutter, which is tough to do. You hold an item in your hand and wonder, do I really want to keep this thing? Even though I haven't used it in over a year? If the answer is I most likely won't use it for another year, I either donate it or throw it away. It's easy for me to do this with clothes and shoes, but other stuff? And why am I keeping my old high school yearbooks? Or the two of my mother's? And for heaven's sake, why am I worrying over it? Mom probably never looked at hers either. My sister has a metal container where she puts crap she's not sure she wants to get rid of. Handy, because it's out of sight. But I refuse to rent a storage unit for crap. I'd rather just get rid of it.
Usually I approach these jobs in a small way ~ I take one thing, make a decision and move on. But contemplating a whole closet is over whelming. Don't get me started on the filing cabinet. It's full of old paperwork we no longer need, but I missed my opportunity to put it in the office shredding bin, as they filled it up on clean night.
Well, I need to get busy, I plan to do a bit of sewing today. Have a great week!
