So when I currently think about my apartment, I just think clutter and "Must get rid of EVERYTHING! Really, this is a daily occurrence now. I would love to start over with a clean slate but that's just not possible right now. I'm usually looking at all the big stuff when it's the little stuff that's driving me crazy. I find I have loads of things for "One day, I will need..."
Things such as free address labels for mail; however, I pay almost all of my bills online and use USPS online postage system for all other mail. (Seriously, look into Click-N-Ship, I love it.)
Old college textbooks that were interesting (Psychology and Communications) that I think I might refer back to one day. So, how many times have I referred back to the books from my first go at college? NEVER.
Cookbooks for that time in my life when I will suddenly start making all of my meals and diligently use that Moosewood cookbook, the pasta one, the two vegetarian ones, and Martha's cookie book. In my last big purge, I donated the four other vegetarian ones I had received knowing full well that more than two would just overwhelm me. Hopefully, I will get to cooking from some of these one day. Especially the brunch cookbook I picked up a few years ago in California. Yes, it's just brunch recipes. Mmmm...
5 new items moved to the Out Box:
- Two necklaces given as presents that I never wore
- One of the shoes that I needed to replace (they were replaced by the Borns)
- One pair of elastic strap sandals, only wore them twice. They were too big, therefore, I didn't feel secure in them (Why I didn't take them back, I don't remember).
- Red fleece scarf, mittens and hat with Burberry plaid accent that I made from a pattern and rarely wore. I will probably give these as a gift. I just have to find the right person.
