I am really shocked at how the getting rid of 5 things a day has motivated me. (See post from yesterday...or maybe the day before, I've lost track of time.)
I started small. I got rid of 5 things from my purse. From there I realized that I could get rid of 5 more things from my purse. So, to the trash can I went. Yesterday, I am happy to say that 20 things found a happy home in my trash can. That was all from my purse. Mind you, that was bubble gum wrappers, receipts, and store flyers...but still, awesome, right?!?!
I was so excited from the purse purge that I went to the fridge. Okay, so 5 things found their way to the trash from there. Woo Hoo! Totally rockin, right? I thought so.
By the time my husband got home from work, the place looked amazing. That's what you were thinking, wasn't it? Well, you would be wrong. I took on the master bath cabinets next. Holy cow, what was I thinking? I threw away all kinds of crap. What was I doing with all of that stuff anyway? If you can't answer it, you know that I sure can't. I tore the cabinet on my side all out. I consolidated things and threw out things. It was enlightening. Whew! I found some soap that had fallen over and spilled...ugh!!
By the time I went to bed, I was pooped...absolutely, tee-totally pooped.
This morning, I got rid of some more things. :) I gave all of my kids barbie dolls and barbie supplies to an adorable little girl who is super excited about having more. (Way more than 5 things there...yeah!)
The evening brought another cleaning sweep. More things in the trash...and with everything finding the trash...I just feel like a weight is being lifted off me. It's awesome.
So, here's my conclusion. I am totally happy if I only throw away/give away, etc. 5 little things a day, but if I feel so motivated to do more...than so be it.
Happy purging to anyone else joining me on this journey & God Bless!
