I have decided I have put it off long enough. I don’t know why I didn’t do a MAJOR clean out of my house all the time I was unemployed. Lord knows I had the time on my hands to do it.
Today I have started on my bedroom closet. I let a lot of junk accumulate in there and it really became a hot mess. I have been seriously going through all my clothes and getting rid of tons of it along with shoes, scarves, belts and other crap in there. I seriously don’t know why I have held on to all of my skinny clothes. I mean I had stuff in there from the early 90’s. I guess secretly I’d been fooling myself that one day I would fit back into those cute mini skirts, dresses, jeans and so on. *sigh*
So I’m boxing it all up and getting rid of it. Usually I donate stuff I get rid of but I’m wondering if this time I can sell some of this stuff. There is an Ebay store not too far from me. They do all the work for you. I’m sure they get a cut of everything you sell but I don’t mind. Some money is better than nothing I guess and then I don’t have to do all the work – they do.
I’m being pretty cut throat in this purging too. I’m getting rid of tons of stuff. I just need to and I want to make my life as organized and light as possible. Time for the change and change creates change. Especially positive change.
That’s one thing I will say was good about growing up in the Army, you moved every three years and so it made you clean stuff out on a more regular basis. It kept you traveling light. I need to get back to that. In my 20’s and early 30’s I was much more organized – the Virgo in me. Time to get back to that kind of living and not sure why the later half of my 30’s I’ve slacked.
It’s going to take me a while to get through all of my rooms closet by closet, drawer by drawer…. but I’ll get it done. Not to mention the garage. I started on that one some time ago but never finished.
Once I’m done with that I think I’m going to get a roommate. I could use the extra money to get some debt paid off. Plus it might be nice to have a roommate again. After that, I think I’ll start working on losing weight. Yes, time to start purging the excess body weight too. The healthy way of course. Maybe I’ll start looking for a new job on top of that. I don’t want to get comfortable in the job I’m in when I could be making more money. We’ll see how the job market is.
Time to just get rid of dead weight and taking my life back.
