Lately I’ve been on this crazy decluttering spree. I think it’s because of the seasons getting ready to change, and I just want to simplify. I am tired of owning Stuff, and I am tired of cleaning and just having crap around. I’ve taken things to Goodwill, put some clothes on consignment, and sold some things on eBay and Craigs List as well. I’ve been careful to not go overboard, as I have a tendency to do so.
Last week I decided to tackle my socks and um, unmentionables drawer. It got to the point where I had a hard time shutting the drawer my socks were in. Obviously I had too many socks. I only have two feet, so I figured I didn’t need that many socks. I pared down to what I thought was necessary, donated all the old socks to Goodwill (I figured people could use them to clean with, plus if they can’t sell it to the public they sell it for scraps) and went on my merry way.
This morning I went to get ready for work, opened my unmentionables drawer, and realized that I didn’t have any clean undergarments left.
At that point I realized that there’s such a thing as decluttering too much!
