It was a lot harder than I expected and required a lot more money than I wanted to spend. So I gave up. Sadness.
But now I am going to use my blog for something better. To chronicle my new adventure of GETTING RID OF STUFF!!
My official 2015 New Year’s Resolution. I have too much stuff. I have clothes over a decade old that don’t fit and/or shouldn’t be worn in public. I have makeup from high school that is unsanitary and needs to be tossed. I am a hoarder in the making who attaches emotions to objects. I have a whole extra bedroom as my personal closet and it’s not enough.
So my NY Resolution – EVERY day find FIVE items to either throw away or give to Goodwill. Items will immediately go into the garbage or a bag to take to Goodwill when filled up. When I can put clean clothes in drawers, stop using the floor as a shelf, have a closet I can get in and out of and use to store current clothing, and have a desk I can actually work on, I can stop.
I posted it on Facebook and my friends posted so many awesome things that I got super excited and started early.
Yesterday I found out some friends of a friend had a house fire and were in desperate need of clothes. These ladies happened to be about my size, so yesterday I took 10 minutes and filled up a whole garbage bag of clothes I haven’t worn in a year and/or don’t plan on wearing in the next year. There was more than one item with the tags still on it. 😦
I plan on filling up at least 2 more bags for these ladies over the weekend. 🙂
Today I went through my makeup in the bathroom and threw out 5 things. One was eyeshadow from 1998. GROSS!!!!!
I am so excited to get rid of stuff, it’s very weird for me. But I can’t wait to have full use of my closet/room again. 🙂
