Weird title for a blog post huh? Well, let me explain. I have several friends moving this summer. And I hear them talking about having to seriously edit all their things in order to move. A couple of the friends are here in real life (for lack of a better description) and some of you online friends are also going through a major move. Take my friend Linda, she is downsizing like crazy and letting go of a lot of things.
So, moving has been on my mind lately. I’m not moving, although I wish I were. LOL But, it really got me to thinking about how much stuff I would have to box up and move.
So, in the spirit of all my friends who are moving, I decided to pretend I was moving to help me reduce all my things.
I am fortunate that all my lovely treasures were thrifted in the first place. So, now it is time for another thrifter out there to have the joy of finding them and using them!
I have been slowly decluttering and letting go of many things I didn’t think I would part with for several months now. But, the thought of moving just kicked it up a notch!
I was selling off dishes online but, the shipping costs are so high, I just didn’t want to deal with that anymore. So, as far as dishes go, I am just donating sets. I figure that I got them super cheap at thrift stores, why not let someone else find them and enjoy them as I have.
The one thing I am fortunate with is the fact that I don’t have an immediate time crunch so, I can really go through things. However, I don’t want that lack of a time table to deter me.
So, it is time to say goodbye to some old loved friends! I have to confess, I have been downsizing my treasures for months now and have been fine with it. However, donating my dishes is the hardest of all!
Everything will be donated to a local charity thrift store. I knew if I didn’t take them right away to the thrift store, I might doubt some of my decisions. I didn’t want to think about them too much so, off to the donation store I went!
I just keep telling myself, “I had to do it! I need to let go!” LOL I wish I could say that I am all done with purging but that is so not true. One step at a time!
So, I guess you could say that today is about “reverse thrifting”.
How about you? Are you finding yourself over run with all your treasures?
