I started my whole de-cluttering process two days ago. And yes, it’s been agony! You
know how it is-“Oh, I can’t get rid of that, Shannon (a young girl that worked for
us many moons ago) made this mug for me in her pottery class. Or my sister made
that pillow for me 15 years ago, but it hasn’t matched anything in my house for
the last 10 years. Well anyway, while I was working look what was going on right
out my front window. The nerve of this fella. Like he has nothing more important
to do with his life, but waste the day sailing on his boat on the Gitche Gumee.
See him sitting there? Like he doesn’t have a care in the world. While less than a
mile from him, in that log house is a woman whose world is falling to pieces because
See that Liptons tea sign? I’ve had that since my daughter was born. She’s 30 now.
That old sifter-I still love those little apples on it. But I have another one I use all
the time. Remember, this is about getting rid of what I’m not using and don’t really
need. The old brown Colvert milk jug was used to decorate our restaurant years ago.
That wooden raven box was from my Yukon years. I think my son in-law will like
it, along with the westerns.
Now this is just the house stuff. DH reminded me about all the boxes he moved out
of the garage into the shed!.
Just more proof that I am truly taking this seriously. This is a set of corelleware I’ve
used for years. My MIL bought a large set of dishes at the Salvation Army for her
“camp” and had extra to share with me, so one set has to go as the other comes in.
