Cleaning up my life

Sunday, April 10, 2011

I've been trying to simplify my life - buying fewer clothes, having fewer appliances - and today, I cleared out my files. I tend to save everything - receipts, warranties, articles on exercising and losing weight and setting up an art business.

So I went through the files. Got rid of warranties for items I no longer own. Threw out lab reports that were over 5 years old - I mean, the dr's office has the originals, why do I need to hold on to them?? Same with car insurance - do I need 10 year old policies? No, I don't.

It was garbage. Now it's in the garbage. I've cleaned out the bookcase, I've cleaned out the files. I clean out my closet every year or two.

It feels good.

    It really does. It's the perfect time to be doing spring cleaning and getting rid of things we thought we needed but really don't.

    Pesach is the best time for a clearout.

    We've thrown out 10 BIG garbage bags from our home this week, and I know that I have many more to go. But it does feel good, doesn't it? And it's good to learn to let go. Might as well practice on the garbage!
