I'm in the middle of this huge "I will WILL WILL stop the clutter NOW" thing, and I agree 100% with what you're saying GearGirl!
NO GARAGE SALE.
Yeahhh that is SO me!
I'd like to add a 'chapter' if I might?
If you are holding on to 'important' things that are 'worth something'...
give yourself a deadline. NOOOO not a six MONTH deadline, but a 24 hour deadline. As in-you have 24 hours to get this listed on Craigslist, or it goes in the trash.
I said trash.
I didn't say 'donate bin'
I said trash.
I know. I Know. I KNOW.
Trash is bad. Donate is good. BUT...."Donate" is akin to "Garage sale". It's a good idea that we NEVER EVER DO, now isn't it?? I mean really now, if we were going to ACTUALLY donate all this stuff we'd have done it by now.
So either sell it. Now. This weekend.
Or ditch it. And breathe a sigh of relief that more clutter is GONE.
I'm on a deadline this weekend to sell about 5 things on craigslist, or they go to the curb Monday. Yes, there is a huge possibility that I'll get too busy and not be able to get it listed tonight/tomorrow. Then I shall sob silently in my CLEAN SOON TO BE OFFICE SPACE (that is now decluttered) while I mourn my loss of potential funds. And I'll be ok, because they aren't getting me any money sitting in my space now are they?
I'm subscribing, because clearly GearGirl is already married so that's the closest I can get to professing my adoration for this thread.
