I am working on simplifying my home. I am trying to get rid of anything that isn't useful. It isn't easy, in many ways it is just as much work as taking off those extra pounds. Some things just keep telling me I need to keep them. Even though I may have already had them in my house for 10-20 years without once using them! So it is tough love and discipline for me. I am keeping things that feed my spirit, even if I don't actually use them. You know, the little memento you can look at and have a flood of memories, that just make you smile and brighten the day. I like things like that, they nurture my soul. But, I have other items I bought along the way, that no longer fit with who I am or where I am going. I have giveaway, throwaway, and maybe in a different location boxes. They are all getting used, mostly the giveaway. Maybe I can sneak a few extra pounds in the throw away box if I keep busy enough.
