What does the Professional Organizer purge…?
Does she practice what she preaches, one in – one out…?
Yes, de-cluttering is an ongoing process, not a once off flurry of activity. As purchases, gifts and projects are freely flowing in, they must be equally flowing out. The operative word here is FREELY…
free·ly – ˈfrēlē/ – adverb
- not under the control of another; as one wishes.
- “I roamed freely”
- without restriction or interference.
- “air can freely circulate”
- in copious or generous amounts.
- “she gave freely from her abundance”
So what does a Professional Organizer purge…
Shoes and handbags I haven’t used and every time I try, I think I really don’t like these – so gone!
A couple of blouses that are super cute on the hanger, but not sure what I was thinking, they just are not me, so bye bye.
2 devotional books, since I have discovered the BIBLE app, I have hundreds of devotionals at my finger tips.
A few dog beds that need mending. To be perfectly honest, its never gonna happen. The dog doesn’t seem to mind that their torn but doesn’t lay in them anyway – OUT!
A herb pot I have decided won’t be big enough and a nearly full large bottle of hand sanitizer I bought for a hoard clear job but now just sits lonely in the garage – off to be useful elsewhere!
AND lastly…. Several recent presents I received that I just don’t like, aren’t me, things I am not going to use – BRUTAL but true. Of course I would not post pictures of such things. I do not want to hurt anyone’s feeling. I am also not going to take up space with things I do not want or like and that I know someone else can use
Where does it all go? Some goes to the local mission, where I know things will be passed on freely for free. Other stuff I sell on eBay or via our local Facebook Mama’s page.
I am also motivated by a goal, a monetary goal. I have something in mind that I would like to purchase and it presently would be more valuable to me than all this STUFF combined.
