Don't you think one of the hardest things about organizing is the purging? It feels so good after you have finished and have seen the wonderful results. But, actually doing it can be so hard.
The past week I really had to do the hard, take no prisoners attitude towards books! I love books! We are major readers here. I did it without much trouble. I got them loaded up and to the charity store they went. Woohoo! Good for me!
I had to really face a book purging challenge!
Oh No! Not cookbooks! Yes! It has to be done! 75% of all the recipes I get are from online these days! Diann you HAVE to do this! You CAN do this!
(Okay, because I have an odd sense of humor I just had to point out something in this picture. Here I am doing a post about cookbooks and in the middle/upper right hand side of this picture is a ramen noodle left over from the Princess’s lunch! LOL Who needs cookbooks when you have ramen noodles! I think I keep my posts and pictures too “real”…I need to stage more!)
I wish I could say that these are ALL of my cookbooks but, that would be a big fat lie! No, not even close.
I love cookbooks. Even when I don’t make a single recipe from them. They are just so fun to read (at least to me) and I love the ones with big glossy scrumptious pictures!
This stack was on top a the free standing cabinet that I just deep cleaned and organized (post later this week) and since I am doing a thorough job on each project I tackle, the top had to be dealt with too.
I do plan to keep vintage and retro cookbooks along with a few classics. I kept a few Gooseberry cookbooks and a couple of Splenda cookbooks from this stack.
The “Keep” pile
The “Goodbye” pile
I will continue to tackle the others as I work my way around our home. But, this was enough heartache for one day! LOL
So, are you purging any areas in your home?
