I’m looking around the house and wondering what more to get rid of. There are a lot of things that I don’t use that I don’t want to let go of, and that’s creating some difficulty for me. I want to get rid of things even faster, because I believe I will be relocating soon. However, as much as I hate the idea of moving everything, I also don’t want to get rid of it. Whether I use it or not. Tomorrow I’ll try again; there are still some clothes I should get rid of, some paperwork to shred, and some dishes to sell or give away. There is also some glass to recycle, there’s some used paint that needs to go to hazmat, and there are some curtains that I won’t use again. A few space heaters that aren’t energy efficient, and a few items that will just be thrown away due to condition. There are CDs I’ve sorted but haven’t weighed yet. And what about the three sewing machines–no four–that I don’t use, or the four colors of wedding envelopes that are completely useless to me?
And the chairs and the chests of drawers and the china… I think a goal of a ton was a little big, and I’m getting discouraged. Maybe I should aim for half a ton at first–I’ve already donated over 600 pounds, so 1000 shouldn’t be too difficult at all.
I’ve decided to count furniture in the weight. That will also help me make my goal.
