No, not that kind of purging (the barfy kind). I hit a limit and I am DONE with the clutter and the extra stuff. Thinking a lot this month about the MIND, it dawned on me that there are constant distractions of some sort. For example, I put things off and continually think about what I forgot to do so my mind stays cluttered and distracted. There there is the physical clutter as I must wade through a certain about of physical items to find what is actually wanted/needed such as finding the sweater I want to wear on the floor of the closet because it got pushed off its hanger by the hardly worn clothes. Then there’s the art supplies, the many books, Rock Band (oh so sad, but we don’t use it anymore), old dishes, appliances not used, so many sets of old sheets used for painting drop cloths, and on and on and on. Just writing about it is overwhelming.
Strangely, I find myself fighting off impulses to buy new things even though there is so much around that is not used at all. So I’m not going to Target or giving in to temptations to simplify by having more. That is just plain silly.
So it is time to purge and clear it out, just have room for the things that are beautiful and/ or useful. We’re starting with the office/ art room. Why hold on to all of this stuff? I really can’t see any reason. So, bye bye stuff! Oh yeah and get ready for us, Goodwill!
