I am no stranger to the many philosophies about clutter. I was a pretty big feng shui fan in the day and actually found that moving my stuff, did change my life. Years later, my friend Lisa even introduced me to the feng shui author/guru, Karen Rauch Carter.
Still, staying on top of my stuff is not a strength.
I've blogged about my depression era grandparents who could make anything out of practically nothing. Well, I have inherited that skill. Trouble is, in order to make anything out of practically nothing, one must save everything.
Everything can become something!
So, this weekend, whilst reading one of the many organizing blogs that I hope will one day transform me into an organized creative, I saw this post about getting rid of 50 things!
Since I am feeling kind of stuck right now. I decided to try throwing out 5o things yesterday. (And, by throwing out, you know I mostly mean Good Will.)
If you counted multiples, I made it to 50. Are old magazines one item or can I count them individually? Can I count each piece of fabric?
How about these aprons? They are adorable! Vintage!
I have enjoyed them, but alas, I don't have a proper place to display them. They sit in a drawer neglected. Perhaps, it's time to let them continue on their journey.
When you live in an apartment and like stuff, it's important to view these things as visiting friends.
Maybe one of you would enjoy these lovely aprons and give them a new home?
Leave a comment on this post. I will draw a name on Friday.
