One of my other resolutions for this year was to carry on my de-cluttering. Last year I got rid of over 500 things, but didn't feel that much lighter. This year I want to get rid of at least another 500. I'm up to 360 so far, and feel like I'm getting a bit better at being ruthless now.
The only real problem is that I am constantly picking things up at the op shop, essentially replacing the things I'm getting rid of! Don't get me wrong, I'm getting better at leaving things behind at the oppies too, but by golly it's hard work. I was made to hoard.
These are some of the things that have made it home over the past few weeks.
I don't limit myself on buying fabric. It will all be used eventually and will probably pay for itself in the long run. Plates, on the other hand, won't. I should probably get a handle on that one!
The dress was just too amazing to pass up. It is minuscule, a mere 23" in the waist, and I doubt it would even fit one of my thighs but the thought of someone else buying it and selling it was too much for me. I initially thought I could pass it on to a verrry skinny friend, but I'm just too in love with it. Sorry Rozi!
I should really get motivated and list some of my 'things to get rid of' on Trademe. It's times like these I wish I was fancy and had an assistant. For that, and to clean my shower. Hmm.
