I was looking through my armoire trying to find something to wear to work last week, and I decided that it is time to start purging.
Rachel at Frugal and Simple worked last year on the declutter-challenge from Amy’s Finer Things. Bloggers were striving to get rid of 2 items a day for the entire year. I am not sure if Amy’s Finer Things is doing this again, but I have decided that this is something I am going to do this year.
I have so many clothes that I have not worn in ages. They either don’t fit right, or I just don’t like them any longer. Also, in my armoire, I have stacks and stacks of books. Why? Because we don’t have a single bookshelf in our home! I am working with 5 or 6 publishers receiving free books to read and review, and then they sit there on top of the books that people give to me. I have many of my own books that I’ve purchased at garage sales or library book sales for next to nothing that I’ve wanted to read, but haven’t had time to get to them. So, this year, I am going to try to read all of these books and sell them. There are only a couple of books that I want to keep. Everything else is clutter. Not only will the books be out of my hair, I will have extra money to put toward my allowance money and use towards the chickens or the items I want to get from Amazon.com.
Would anyone like to join me in my monthly purge sessions?
