We’ve lived in our house for more than 15 years. Growing up, I moved at least every three years. The difference between the two is that you tend to declutter stuff every time you move. When you don’t move, you have to actually make an effort to declutter.
1. I hoard outgrown kid stuff. Partly because I’m lazy, partly because I never know when one of the kids is going to freak out about something they can’t find, partly because I think “oh, I can sell that.” Well, hello, my time is much better spent working than organizing. I got a call this week from one of the places I donate to. They have a pickup in my neighborhood on Friday.
will be leaving my house tomorrow AM.
2. I’m an emotional hoarder. I still have the champagne bottle that was decorated for me on Bid Night by my sorority sisters. I have the big wooden letters that used to be on the front of the sorority house. (My dad made them. I took them when the house was closed down. I’ll be keeping them.) I still have the piggy bank I had growing up, even though it’s split in half.
Now I just need to figure out where to cash in this…
3. I’m a guilt hoarder. I buy (or get for review) running clothes that I like but don’t end up ever choosing when it’s time to run. This is where YOU benefit. I have three running skirts to get rid of. Each of them has been worn at most two times. Would it be awful of me to post them on the blog and offer them up to you guys?
