I have to admit that doing this challenge is not easy. It would be really easy if I were getting rid of other people’s things. But I am not. I am trying to stick to getting rid of my own crap first, set a good example and all that good stuff.
Anyway, so I started off Day 1 with the VCR/DVD player. That was easy enough because we really don’t use it, it’s been sitting next to my husband’s dresser since we moved in.
Now it’s on to something else. I decided to start in my closet. Which is pretty difficult because, even though I typically alternate wearing about the same five things every week, I don’t want to shed clothes from my already bare closet. I have clothes in there that I had in highschool. Pretty sad. It’s actually just one thing and I am holding onto because I really like it. It’s this comfy wool sweater that I like to wear once in a while. Although I have been thinking about felting it and making some nice mittens out of it. I am getting off track.
So, I missed Day 2 and 3 and I am making up for it here. I haven’t gotten to Day four yet, but the day isn’t over yet.
For Day 2, I decided to get rid of this shirt that I kind of liked, but when I wear it I look like a box. And the other is this sweatshirt wrap thing that I never really quite got down the right way to wear it. I chose to show off some pictures, well, because I can include how ugly they are too-or not.
Day 3, I decided that I have enough shoes and I need to get rid of a few tennis shoes/running shoes. One pair I used mostly for mowing the lawn, another I have run multiple races in, including a half marathon in Gettysburg, and the last I just thought they looked cool but I don’t wear them so what’s the point in keeping them?
