There are many things going on in my life right now that I don't feel that I have too much control over. It drives me a little crazy. But, it has given me the motivation to find areas in my life that I can control. So, in that respect, it's a good thing.
One thing that I have decided to do is go through and organize my house. I have already thrown away some things that have outlived their usefullness. This has made me feel a little better.
Another thing I am working on is determining the items in my household that are still useful but that I really haven't used in awhile or have no plans on using within the next year or so. I have always read that if you haven't used something in a year, you don't really need it. I found a resale shop that's really close to my house and have set up an appointment with them for 11 am on Monday. I've got a few things ready to take already. I'm planning on spending time today and tomorrow getting a few more things together. If I am pleased with the shop, I can always get more things together and set up another appointment. If I am not pleased, I have a list of other resale shops that I can try. Uncluttering the house and making some money is a win-win situation. A yard sale is not an option, as I live in a condo that is off the main road.
I'm anxious to see how much I can accomplish. I am hoping that by doing this, it will accomplish a couple things. I will be more organized and have a little more room for things that really matter. I will have a little extra money. And I will spend time and energy on something I can control as opposed to sitting and worrrying about things I can't control.
