So I started pulling out sections of different rooms and re-organized my dresser, going back to the folded and filed method (I tried stacking but it wasn't as effective for me since I'd forget about the ones at the bottom). I knew it'd be difficult to get Mr. Woo in on cleaning but even he was able to pull out a few things!
|The start of something beautiful|
Here's my last count between the two of us before I had a spurt of "nesting" and just ransacked items out of the home:
- Jeans (2)
- Ts/Shirts (27)
- Pants (3)
- Dresses/Skirts (8)
- Jackets/Sweaters (11)
- Socks (10)
- Shoes (4)
- Home goods (6)
- Jewelry (4)
- Bags/Purses (3)
- Misc. (21)
|One of many bags sent to the trunk|
We kept most of it in the trunk so that I could try to sell it at Buffalo Exchange, but we weren't able to wait in their crazy lines. I ended up donated most of it and just picked a select few to sell. I've always tried to be a bargain hunter, but I'm also realizing that to have room to grow is a worthy deal too. I'd rather have a sparse home that can slowly be filled with things that we absolutely adore and like, rather than a jam-packed one that feels cluttered and disheveled. This is harder to do with two people who are very different in many ways.
Nonetheless, it feels great to get rid of some clutter and having extra
Do you have a lot of "stuff" in your home too? Why does it mound up so quickly? How do you control it?
