Spring Cleaning ...

How is it we collect "stuff" we will never use??? And it's tucked away all over the house - inside and out. With our last move 4 years ago, I vowed I wouldn't let that happen any more. We lived in our last home for 20 years, so you can imagine the "stuff" that was collected. Although we didn't have a whole lot of time to purge before the move, we did alot that first year in the new home. I guess we just made room for different "stuff".

You see, we now have a two car garage, which seems to be a staging area for "stuff" - coming and going. I've justified the staging area by using the excuse of my two adult children as potential destinations for the "stuff". But lets be realistic - that is perpetuating the behaviour - where did alot of our "stuff" come from - parents!

So, this weekend hubby and I have been purging. Boy it feels good ... the back of the SUV is full of bags and boxes of "stuff" to be carted off to the nearest goodwill store. There is still alot more to be purged, but this is a great start. Something about Spring that get the de-clutter mechanism going.
Happy Spring Cleaning!!

  2. Whoops, sorry, I realized after I posted my comment that I made a typo that I had to fix....

    I literally have a room full of stuff that I need to get rid of. Of course, there's always that part of my brain that says "but what if I need it some day..." I'm SO bad at purging!!

    I hope spring inspires me to de-clutter too!!
