~ The Purge ~ (no not the movie)

The-Purging-Of-The-PriesthoodSo these last two weeks I have seriously been purging a lot of stuff including clothes.  It used to be that I could put all I owned in the back of my small toyota pickup.  But, as anyone knows, if you stay in one place for very long things just start creeping in.  I have lived here with Gary for about 6 years so slowly over time I have accumulated too many things.  I was starting to feel overwhelmed by it all.  Most people may look at my place and think I didn’t have that much to purge but for me, clutter just clutters my mind, and I always have a problem with my brain!  It has felt so good to just move everything into one pile in the extra room.  The only thing I am waiting on is for a friend of mine to come by and look through the clothes and take what she wants and to look through the things to see if she needs anything.  Once that is done, then the very next Saturday I am hauling all of this stuff to the recycling center where there is a free area.  People donate things and people can take anything for free.

I keep asking myself, “What would fit into a tiny house?” and “What would I really take with me if I moved into a tiny house one day?”    It is helping me really determine what I would either need or could just not live without.  There are a few items – like a beautiful shelving unit – that I have moved into the other room but I haven’t decided to give it away yet.  I really like it but I just don’t have enough books or things to fill it up anymore.

I am almost completely finished purging my area upstairs.  I should be able to finish this weekend, for sure.
