Okay, not all of it, but a lot of it. And it seems this has been a problem since my teen years. (I'm not a hoarder. I can walk through all of my rooms just fine, but it still seems that I have way too much that I/we don't use). Proof that it's been an ongoing issue?
Exhibit A. This is me in my parent's van, about to leave for college. We couldn't fit my sister into the van! How sad is that? Should have known then.
First, I like a good deal. Second, I like to think I can reuse and re purpose some things. Third, it's genetic. I have a predisposition to cute paper products and cute things in general. Oh, and again, I like a good deal.
Fast forward to the last month. The end of July and beginning of August have had one theme. "Purge"! At first it was, "purge, pack, stack", and then later, just "purge"!
This is one of two truck loads of "treasures" I brought to the thrift store.
Once we got to Florida, it was time to go through more...this time, mainly clothes. Wow, I had gotten rid of a lot in those two truck loads, but apparently it was time for more! This is pile number 1. Jason created pile number 2 and it's awaiting transportation to a thrift store. There will be a pile number 3 when I go through my true winter clothes and wash them all. I can already think of one sweater that needs to go.
It means shopping! Kidding! Kinda...
