House Purge, Life Purge

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.
