Ok, so I had a great idea… I was going to declutter every room in the house, and get rid of the junk.
I was going to sell my good quality tat, chuck out anything broken, donate stuff to charity, all in the name of simple living.
So far, I’ve managed to put 20 items on eBay, donated nothing, and could not bare to part with my hole filled old cardigan or my yellow bag with the broken zip.
Why? Because I think I lack strategy and will power.
Instead of starting in one room, I found stuff from all over the place to put on eBay. And as for my cardigan and bag… Well, those things tell a story.
Really, it’s just stuff… Broken old stuff.
That old cardigan could get a few more years use out of it, and gain a few more holes. The old yellow bag, well it’s fine if I don’t need to zip it up.
I wouldn’t be seen out wearing either of them, yet they live in my home. If my house was burning down and I had to grab a few items to take with me, I’d let them burn.
But here I am… Surrounded by these 2 things.
Neither of them have made it to the bin.
