Letting go even without the time to think. Giving it away is becoming so much more easier today than yesterday.
I am often getting caught up in the business world and I have to leave thoughts of home behind. On some days that is a blessing but on others not so much because I cannot clean my house as good as I want it to be cleaned.
As I begin a new part of my life in this September of 2015 I am loading and removing things out of this house as I go. When I say as I go I mean I am taking things to the car and each day when I go to work or coming from work, I drop it off at someones house or a donation box.
This week I began to gut a house, meaning taking down some sheet rock and removing carpet, etc. This was my old home place and yes it does still have a little furniture and junk.
I had one of my all time favorite black and white comforter sets there and I loaded it up and took it to a needy family, with pillows. Tony did not even look at stuff and put it in trash bags to get rid of.
Yesterday, When I left home to take someone to the doctor I loaded some of that inheritance up, a trunk load, and took it out to that old home place, a yard sale brewing in the back of my mind, if it don`t sell its closer to the donation box or Salvation Army thrift store donation center.
When I clean out the stockroom here at home, I have more food to go that I no longer eat, yes I have gave up some of the processed foods like canned soup. When I have a little more fresh vegetables I give them away as I did yesterday to an elderly lady and my sister.
Removing any hoarded item helps, even one a day. Although I like my home and my stuff sometimes to much is just to much, especially when its hard to clean. Since I am over the clothing hoard I am moving to another place to thin out. I even have all my shoes neatly organized and dust free.
How about you? have you tossed some hoarded things lately?
