Get Rid of the Clutter
Wowza what a week. A short work week but jam packed none the less. My brain hurt by the time this morning rolled around.
I've been tackling little projects here and there. I still have the bug the declutter my closets. I tell ya, working at Grandpa's sure put things in perspective. If I'm going to end up throwing it all in the trash one day, what is the point!
Grandpa and I tossed 16 more bags worth of junk into garbage bags today. Such a trooper.
These were the 3 questions he kept asking out loud:
How many things does one person need?
Where did you find THAT?
Do you want it? (cracked up every time)
When it came time to sift through things that were of sentimental value, I could tell he had to really think about some things, but in the end, it went into the garbage. He knew he had the memories and the items were just collecting dust, taking up space and not being used anymore.
We are almost out of the TOSS phase of this clean up project. Next is to pack up items for donations and then deep clean the joint.
P.S. I sent 4 more bags to the Goodwill out of my own closets this week and pitched two bags into the trash.
