Yea, I know, we still have four years to go. Some may say it’s a little too soon to begin the purging. But as I walk around the house and the garage, I look at what we’ve accumulated over the years and wonder why we needed all of this “stuff” in the first place. I know I (we) must have had a good reason at some point in time, but for the life of me I can’t remember what it was.
Today’s project is to tackle the office closet, which is roughly 4′ x 8′. I know it’s not much, but I figure we need to do a little at a time so that we don’t become overwhelmed and under pressure when we get closer to becoming full-timers.
I have no idea what’s in there, it’s been about ten years since I saw the back of the closet and for the past few years the only open space has been an 18″ square inside the door. The closet was used for office supplies when I had my own business. Again, I know there was a good reason I bought most of the stuff, but did the business really need two binding machines with all of the ancillary supplies? The business didn’t have that many employees!
Well I’m happy to say that after several hours today’s mission was accomplished. Three contractor’s bags was filled with garbage, and several items were put on the pile for the garage sale we plan on having in September.
I’t feels good to be finally starting the “purge”. If you’re looking for an “almost” new binding machine, let me know. I’ll give you a good deal.
