I’ve started looking at everything with fresh eyes. What can I let go of, what can I give away? My closet, my bookcases, my drawers are all open to this challenge now to the point where I was just in the bathroom wondering if I needed a soap dish for my soap or could I get by without it?
Today, I got a notification from an online sales site that a bag I had posted about a month ago had sold. Only problem is that I had taken it off sale and donated it to the laundry room clothes bin. What to do, what to do? I wrote to the buyer to let him know I no longer had that bag and would he like my other backpack, the one that was still up for sale? I wait to hear.
But, while I was checking my closet to see if I still had the bag – before I remembered giving it away – I saw two sleeping bags and hauled them out. I have my sleeping bag, lightweight and really toasty with a couple of wonderful features, so I don’t really need two more. Gone!
Along with two more bags of books.
