The time has come to clean out things I don't wear and donate them. I have to say that this year I'm surprised at how willing and even eager I am to get rid of everything. When I say everything I mean I literally am throwing out 60% of my stuff. I think that is partly due to the fact that my style has changed a lot this past year. I used to be the type of person who kept things just to have them in case of extreme (and highly unlikely) situations where I might need them. But I thought to myself, if you didn't use it in the past year, it's got to go. So that's what I did. I dumped all my clothes on the floor and went through each item, keeping only what I had used. Ok so I kept a few things... they're for memories. Really they are. I now feel much lighter and clutter free. Oh the joys of cleaning out the old!
And keeping the good. (Even if I have to wash everything again. Why did I put them on the floor?)Then again I don't think I can ever get rid of any of my Snoopy pajamas. They are welcome to stay for as long as they fit. But the best part about cleaning out the old, is more room for new(er) joys.
