Getting uncluttered

May 27, 2008

Ok, I have been asked this question – “just what have you discarded in your 365 day clutter challenge?” So far I have tossed or given away – a broken remote, work schedules from 2004, hair brush, empty shampoo bottles (now sure why I was saving them!), pens that don’t write, broken vase that I thought maybe I could glue back together, an old unchargeable tooth brush, T-shirt, worn out zip-lock bags, a torn beanie baby, purse I didn’t use, shopping bags that were torn, 2 blouses I haven’t worn in 6 years, cassette player, souvenirs from Ukraine, empty box from laundry detergent (no idea why I was saving that!), a pair of jeans that are too small, and last but not least an old broken dog leash. I feel like I should say “and a partridge in a pear tree” – but it’s not Christmas…yet. It feels good to get rid of clutter and stuff that had been set aside thinking it might one day be useful.

Speaking of stuff that “might be useful” – I remember several years ago when the repairman came to fix the stove. The handle had to be pushed in to let the gas flow so the burner would light. Only problem was the handle wouldn’t push in. So the repairman asked me if I had a pen with a small spring in it. Yep, you guessed it! He took the spring and used that to fix the handle. Who ever would have thought a small thing like that would fix a stove handle?! So sometimes it does pay to have some “useful” clutter laying around. Only sometimes though!! How about you? Are you willing to take the 365 day clutter challenge?
