Back in early August I decided it was time to start getting rid of clutter. I spent a few weeks combing through my things & promised myself that I would give away, donate, or toss at least one bag a day through September.
It’s now October and my home is at least fifty bags lighter. I even tackled the dreaded walk-in closet and sentimental boxes full of journals, yearbooks, pictures, cards, etc. Now much of my old stuff is gone and it looks and feels so much better around here.
My new motto: If I love it and/or will use it in the next year, keep. If not, pass it on.
