It's time for the stuff to go.
Part of the prompting is from looking around and being slightly frightened by how quickly the mess gets out of hand. I'm a piler, not a filer which means that things accumulate on surfaces quickly. But I rarely need everything found in every pile. The other part of the prompting is because of some big life changes coming up for me in the next year. I can't get into all the details but basically...I need to par down. Plus, a few Sunday's ago when I was too tired to physically attend church I listened to an old sermon about getting rid of the "stuff" in your life. We let our possessions pile up and cloud our vision of God. We put the big house, the mountain of clothing, and the new boat before our relationship with The Almighty.
Again, it's time for the stuff to go.
I decided to start small (because I'm easily overwhelmed) so I started with my little dresser.
|So much junk on such a small space.|
|Amazingly clean and organized box.|
|Shamefully all these gift cards have *some* balance left on them. I need to get out more...|
|Neat clean dresser top.|
|Looks worse than it is...I promise.|
Yes, this isn't "technically" a completed project because I need to get some more boxes and pack stuff away. But I feel so much more organized than I did this morning. The key is to keep it from piling up again.
I don't think I will do purging every day but I will keep at this. I need to downsize!
