I don't want this now, but...
|I didn't take a "BEFORE" picture, but 15 minutes ago this drawer was a mess.|
I've identified a major flaw in my thinking at the moment of each decluttering decision:
I don't want this now, but I might want it later.
- I don't like this tangerine pleated polyester knit -- and I haven't liked it in ten years -- but one day, I might find the perfect use for it.
- This kelly green liquid eyeliner is really high maintenance -- and I only wear eyeliner about once a month -- but some fun Saturday night I will wish I had it.
- I don't have time for this 1970s creative visualization workbook, but maybe one day that will be my thing!
All of these authentic examples were F-R-E-E. It's not like I dropped some dough, and now I can't let go.
Another GIANT issue: if I ever did want or need one of these things, I would have forgotten I own it, or I would not be able to find it!
Ok, I'm ready for someone to park a dumpster outside the window so I can start chucking without even fooling with garbage bags.
