I am going through my house and 'clearing out' like many are doing w the declutter challenge.
Nothing cures wanting to buy more stuff or trinkets like going through cabinets or your WHOLE house and throwing out bags, boxes of stuff that you paid essentially thousands for and in some cases never used, never wore, 'lost' so you bought 2 or three of them.
Wow. I am trying to sell some of my stuff and getting 'pennies on the dollar'
Throwing out books too and realizing the library is a better option sometimes.
then looking at pottery barn or other catalogues or model homes and seeing THEY actually have LESS stuff out .. less decorative items but nice well placed ones.. wow always learning
Same goes for my insanely large yard.. I just had it mulched.. 50 yards..I was originaly thinking wow I have to fill all these beds.. now thinking I will get some advice and go for a few well placed things.
Have made zero progress (actualy have not tried) towards losing my 10lbs I put on w the 'house saga'
Thinking of Dr Atkins for a week. it helps me to get the head start that gives and then I tend to be thin so can just get exercising again etc and eating normally. just need push at the start
Onward folks. good to read everyone else's stories
