One of the many fall-outs of our lives is too much stuff. Getting out of the habit of acquiring new stuff is the basis of balancing your budget. Getting into a habit of getting rid of old stuff is the basis of balancing your life.
So, after about a week of trying it out, I am challenging myself to get rid of at least one thing a day for this month – sell, give or toss. If I can’t bring myself to do it, my penalty is that I must do whatever it is I was planning to do with the item in question – frame it, fix it, put it where it belongs.
June 1 – child’s label maker; a birthday present never used by my own child now 20;; left behind when re-gifted to my niece – who comes up with this stuff? Going to goodwill. Hopefully there is some child somewhere out there whose head can get around making their own labels
June 2 – two vintage dining chairs earmarked for reupholstering; great bones but they made a home for some warm-blooded creatures when left outside over the past two winters and I don’t think I will ever find the time for them so they will go on the boulevard over the weekend. I’m sure there is some industrious person who can turn their talents to these.
