I LOVE my things. I will fully admit it. This is probably not the attitude I should really have, and I know that. I have spent a large sum of money, acquiring things that I like. I have bought clothes, scrapbooking supplies, books, dishes, toys for my kids, decor items, Christmas decorations- almost anything you can think of? Why? I wanted it. Simple as that. Do I have a shopping problem? Yes I do. It's frustrating and scary to be thinking that I am going to be decluttering and getting rid of things that I worked so hard to have. I want to be able to take EVERYTHING with me to Mexico. I've even considered getting a U-Haul to drive down to the border, but that doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I can't take everything.
So over the next few weeks you will see me decluttering:
- Hobby Items, including scrapbooking materials, art items, and possibly books.
- Papers and things I've held on to for no apparent reason
I figure that these are most of what I have. If I can break the emotional bond I have to most of this junk taking up space in my life, then I will be able to move on to the next chapter of my life, lighter and freer than I ever have been. Please join me on this journey, because I will need LOTS of emotional support, and please tune in on WEDNESDAYS as this will be the day I will be posting my progress- see you on Wednesday when I will tackle the immense piles of kid's toys that we've amassed over the last 7 years or so.
