We have begun a major stuff purge or a purge-a-palooza as I like to call it. I mean we are talking everything in this house will have been touched by these tired hands (I have been purging stuff all weekend) by the end of this week or at least that is the goal. Honestly, I am not good at getting rid of things. I stress out over needing items later. My husband says, “If we need another one we’ll get one later.” I look at the toss and we’ll just get another one later as a waste so I have a hard time with the purge.
To help me get rid of the excess stuff I needed a little inspiration. I have a girlfriend, Lauren, who is the most organized person I know. Every time I started slipping into the “What if I need this thing, I haven’t used in years” I would stop and think, “Would Lauren Keep It!?!” If it was a no, it would go. Fingers crossed for the rest of the week!
Thought you might like to see the purging progress….ugh it gets worse before it gets better right!?!
We took everything out of the shed….this is what it looks sadly after A LOT of stuff was taken out.
