Today I have spent simplifying just a little bit more. I managed to pool some items together that were duplicates like body powder and also took some things that were in larger containers and downsized them into smaller containers, like the baking soda and the powdered milk.
I eliminated a small plastic container from underneath the bathroom sink as well as polished off some taquitos that were left over from dear Daughter's visit. Not the healthiest but better than just tossing that money away.
While looking around I stumbled upon a bag of old clothing stuffed in the bottom of a closet. At first I was going to leave it but then I remembered what Everett said about just getting rid of stuff, even if you have to burn it. A lot was old, worn out kid's clothing so you know what? It is now in the trash.
Perhaps it could have been sorted through and used but frankly it just feels good to have one less bag of junk in this house! I was so inspired by that simple action I tackled the paper catch-all mounted to my refrigerator and pared it down to a point where it is almost empty from a state of overflow! Things that needed to be kept were photographed and then tossed!
Then I tackled another storage tote and reduced the amount of stuff in it as well! After a bit of rearranging I was able to condense my possessions even more!
Between that bag and the stuff I reduced my herbie is over half-full! That is a delightful prospect in itself! I eliminated all of that stuff and it didn't hurt at all, which gives me hope for eliminating more in the future!
RowdyKittens posted a link to a new Dee Williams' video on PBS. I really admire Dee for living as small as she does! Check it out for a tour of her tiny house and to learn about the business she started.
Every little bit, every single piece is a step toward freedom. Sometimes I wish it would come faster, however!
