Every year about this time, when the weather becomes cooler, I vow to make this the season I get rid of the clutter in my house. This clutter includes clothes, books, mementos, and household appliances. However, I never fully realize the accomplishment of this goal, because I'm a saver. The things I find hard to discard are the "it could be useful," "someone gave it to me," and especially "I may read this book again one day." While I have no problem getting rid of obvious trash, like outdated magazines or newspapers or broken items--I seem to get stuck at the same place every year. Maybe this year will be different???
