This is the end of my first week of purging myself of belongings that I don’t need in an attempt to reduce clutter, crowding, pack-rat-ism, whatever. I decided to get rid of 5 things each day for the month of August.
For week 1, I went over the 35 necessary items by a long shot, but I’m just going to count it as a good week. Assorted video game items that I know I don’t need…
Two of the games shown, and the equipment associated with them, were very hard to let go of. I have very fond memories of playing them and I had the daydream that I would save them and play them with my boys. Perhaps I could, but why? The games would only be nostalgic for ME. Heck, the boys might not even like them.
Instead I think I’ll find something THEY want to do and spend time with them doing that. It’s a win-win in my eyes.
Week 1 was a Thing A Day success. The things are up for sale right now online and if that doesn’t work they will be garage saled or donated next month.
