I hope you are having a great weekend so far! To be honest, I am writing this post on Friday afternoon while listening to an old Counting Crows cd, wishing I was running outside in Michigan along my favorite routes in Rochester. But since travel is not in my near future, I’m guessing that as you read this I am actually having brunch with a dear friend. And later I will go grocery shopping at Aldi and Trader Joe’s with Erwin.
My hope is that I manage to get a bubble bath in tonight- candles and all. : )
End of the Week Exfoliation
“Reading your blog has really helped me clean. Â Reading your entry about the three questions to ask yourself and if I haven’t worn them in the last 6 months (or for me… a couple years!) then I don’t need them. Â I was holding onto old clothes that I had good memories wearing or I remember how much I purchased them for. Â But they are hiding the clothes that I really want to wear! Â I don’t need them in my closet to remember them. Â Less really is more. Â I’m glad I can give them to our local thrift store so someone else can enjoy them as much as I used to.”
“A shirt and skirt which are both too short. I don’t know why I’ve been holding on to them for so long.”
“This cute little alarm clock got me through college and now it’s stuck at 5:16…it’s still ticking…just not moving.Â Time to go. I thought about keeping it bc it’s cute and little and because it’s been w/me for so long…BUT do I really need a clock that doesn’t work?Â I think this is how hoarding begins!”
“A custom lavender throw pillow. It has a beaded trim and sparkly mesh on the front. I like it, but it doesn’t match my decor. It’s about 23 inches wide and 9 inches tall. I’m going to ask for $10 for shipping via Paypal if anyone wants to comment and claim.”
“I have a jewelry box, container thingy that has a velvety bottom(comes out), a foam pad and snaps shut.Â It is good for display a couple necklaces and they won’t shift during transport because of the foam pad.”
As you can see, my exfoliated shirt quickly found a new owner 40 seconds after I decided to pass it on. I’ve had that navy shirt for a year or so and only worn it a few times. The sleeves felt a little tight around my elbows (not a comfortable feeling) and it turns out, that is because it is meant to be Susie’s shirt. Sometimes it takes me years to realize that the clothing I buy is often meant for Susie. It’s funny how life works.
