I have begun a purge. I felt compelled to buy a book called, The life-changing magic of tidying up. I hadn't read 10 pages until I purged two large trash bags full of clothes and scarves.
I am not sure where this purge will lead me, but I am excited to find out. The people who know me, know that I am frugal. I love to re-purpose, I love to recycle, I love to find new uses for old things. But I was feeling stressed all the time. Feeling like I never got caught up, like I never got things cleaned up, like I never got to the things that I enjoy doing. I felt unhappy and sad. So, I started the purge.
Today when I got to work, I continued the purge in my office. This is more challenging, because there are lots of things I need to keep. But there are lots of things I don't. I threw away, filed away, cleaned and tidied my office. It felt good to leave on Friday afternoon with a clean (er) office.
I continued at home, still working on my closet. More came out.
Cute hair accessories, old nail polish, cute vintage Samsonite luggage,
I am planning to continue all this weekend, at least Saturday. It feels good. It feels fresh. I am not sure what else I will change after finishing the book, but am excited to see. I am hoping to purge lots of negative thoughts in the process. More to be revealed....
