I have a few answers to that question…
- St Vincent dePaul
- Recycle Bin
If you are following along and hopefully participating, you would know that this is actually week 6 of purging one item per day. I started this in December in preparation for January when people might be looking for motivation to purge. When I look back at all the stuff I have been able to purge and not miss any of it I am amazed! I also think that it would have been fun to weigh it… I feel like my house went on a diet; however, as with a diet, it is not always about the number that counts. It is about feeling better, stronger, healthier and happier!
What went out this week? Toddler drinking and eating vessels, drinking glasses, kiddo's art work, diaper pail, magazines, socks (not pictured), and mirror. The hard decision for the week was the kiddos art. I have told countless clients different options for choosing pieces, displaying them, storing them and purging but it was hard to do myself. We are early in the creation years so I know there will be many more session like this. What did I do? Well, I took a photograph of each piece, and then…gulp, threw them away! I will always have a digital image of the pieces and will likely include them in some scrapbooking.
I hope you are all having a happy and healthy new year!
