    January purge

    Got rid of a ton of stuff today. Bunch of clothes that no longer fit. I pitched them all - worn out and stretched out stuff. Not worth it to donate. Cleared a bunch of old spices and such out of kitchen cabinets. Old papers, some magazines, etc. Just a ton of stuff. I have some more things to go, but the majority of it is done.

    Felt FAB to get it done.

    Good work, Tradd!
    I am working on my annual file purge and making good progress. I also sold an old camera on eBay. It was a good camera, but I don't see myself ever going back to film. I haven't used it in 12 years or more, so at this point it was just clutter.

    I've posted a bunch of not used any longer dive gear online that has mostly all sold. It covered some new gear purchases with some left over.

    Worked on my kitchen today and have boxes for the thrift store. I like being able to keep the lids on the pots even though it takes up room. We have a small kitchen but only need so much stuff even with entertaining frequently. The book mentioned in the other thread said to think of your home as a container and only so much stuff fits in it. She said to think of everything that way so you only can have as many clothes as fit in your closet, so many books for a bookcase, etc.

    DS got me new household items to replace worn out ones for my birthday, so I am tossing grungy items like an old cookie sheet, old plunger, stained sheet, etc.

    I am mentally making a list of things to donate to the Park
    conservancy sale, but that doesnt take place until June. I suppose I should make an actual list because by then
    I will have forgotten some of it.

    IL, when I have to wait to donate I box it all up and mark the boxes so when the time comes I am ready.

    I would, but most of them are rather large.

    Then it sounds like a list is the better option.
