A nice by-product of this cleaning out project is that it is forcing me to get organized. For every one thing I get rid of, there are two things I want to keep (children’s drawings, etc.), and I’m actually putting them away in an organized manner. (I know that many of you do this naturally, but for me, it’s BIG.)
It’s also starting to become a habit! I don’t feel “complete” somehow until I tackle the ten and post the image on flickr.
The 10 things I’ve gotten rid of today include an old mirror, a shoelace, a duplicate cd, a ridiculously expensive fake flower that I thought would enhance my life at some point, a piece of someone else’s artwork that needs to go to an appreciative home (not at the bottom of one of my bins, in other words), a journaling magazine, a gig bag (Christer’s), a coffee maker, some art supplies, and the large plastic bin itself!
The note by Wes (at 5) I’m not getting rid of but pasting in my journal, but I thought you’d like it.
