Since the first of the year I've been decluttering and organizing the house which is a real joy for me. It makes me feel so calm. The only obstacle that gets in the way of this task is the idea that I may need this item someday, and it's often true. Case in point, last summer I tried several times to sell that Dash and Albert rug on eBay and it never sold. And here it is 6 months later and I'm using it.
Here's a photo of it back in May of 2012 when I first purchased it. I got a lot of use out of it then and sure enough I put it away in the basement and now it's back in the house. I do that a lot. What's your biggest obstacle to getting rid of things? Is it memories, don't know where to start, or fear that you'll need it one day?
So far so good on the no spending for the month. I really think this will be an easy month or 2 for me because my birthday, Christmas and anniversary are all within a few weeks of each other. Summer will be another story. How's it going for you? x
