Since moving, I have had this urge to purge.. go through everything and get rid of the junk we don't use.. or even worse... didn't even remember that we had. It became really obvious which things fell into this category during the packing and unpacking stages. Seriously, we have too much crap. I need to simplify, get rid of excess..
I see a garage sale coming on! Those are so much work though aren't they? Are they worth it?
Example.. the pile of cardstock on the right, keeping for me... the pile on the left, going into the kids' craft stash! I know.. not really purging, as in getting it out of the house, but repurposing for a better use (because honestly, some of those colours only a kid could love heee!).. but this is an example of the 'excess' I was talking about.. how on earth did I end up with this much cardstock!?
We have dozens of boxes and bags of stuff down in the basement that we haven't even thought of unpacking yet.. do I miss it? No. Do I know what is down there? No. Some of it is indeed for the basement when it is finished.. but some boxes got sent down there because we just didn't want to deal with them.. and I don't think I have missed a single bit of it in our day to day living.
Garage sale.. or online classifieds.. donate!? What to do what do!? Maybe a bit of all three options?
Now to find the motivation! Is it the season? Spring cleaning? Anyone else feeling the need to simplify? Anyone else crazy enough to go through the process of a garage sale? ha ha ha! ;)
To be continued (??? lol)...
