Every Saturday I challenge myself (and you) to find one thing that’s become clutter and let it go. It started when I saw one too many magazine headlines at the checkout urging me to take 567 easy steps to a clutter free house.
I know and you know it’s not that simple. But I had a hunch I could probably find one thing to declutter each week.
Just one and then we’re done.
Here’s what I’ve let go of so far.
I love hearing about the things you all let go and was thrilled to hear from Angie recently, who told me she’s gotten the Send it away Saturday habit:
“I have always been an organizer, just love how it makes me feel, so needless to say I really enjoy your Times Call article’s and now your emails. Five years ago I went to sleep healthy and very organized, in the night I rolled over and woke up screaming the room was spinning and flip flopping, I found out after years of countless hospital and doctor appointments that I have vertigo, sorry for the long story just want you to know due to years of spinning I really can’t even bend over without getting dizzy and sick to my stomach, so I bet you can tell where I’m going with this long email I have not been able to keep up on my organization.
But now because of you I look forward to send it away Saturday, you made me realize I can still try to organize one thing at a time. Sometimes Saturday runs into Thursday depending on my dizzy days but I always send something away.
Last Saturday I tackled our grandkids’ play kitchen set they have outgrown, it was hard because of so many memories of fun healthy days but I knew it was time for it to go, the best part is I put it on Craigslist and the sweet lady that fell in love with it is adopting a little girl so I got organized and a little girl got a new toy.”
I’d love it if you joined me too. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you sent on its way this week. Extra points for photos!
