Sometimes I get a really strong urge to go through my things and get rid of anything I haven't used. Usually this happens when my clothes get really disorganized and I can't find anything to wear even though I know I have a perfectly good outfit hiding under a pile of sweaters. Or ice skates taking up a giant tupperware box.
Found some loose change.
Taking an extended vacation to Goodwill.
I clean things out every 4-6 months. Yesterday I started with my bedroom closet. I had a dress in there that I haven't worn since 2001. 2001! The style is nice-ish and it fits but the fabric is so awful that it went in the giveaway pile. I also had a brown cotton dress with gold sequins on the bust and a drop waist. Drop waists look terrible on me. Giveaway pile.
Last weekend some ladies and I were looking at some old photos. I'm trying to decide which photos to keep and which to toss. I have two giant boxes filled with photos and journals and other notes from grade school through University. What do I do with all those things? I only look at them when I'm trying to clean out the house and then they go back in their bin. And yearbooks? I have 6 of them. Do you still have yours? I'm considering getting rid of mine.
