I used to be quite a pack rat ~ I would keep everything
sentimental factor does that to a person.
Also it depended on who gave it to me
did not want to hurt anyone’s feelings by giving something away that you absolutely hate.
A couple of things got broken accidently on purpose
during a move a few years back ~ less guilt that way.
Then came along the show Clean Sweep with Peter Walsh on TLC.
I would sit and watch it and something clicked…..
it’s not the item that holds the memory ~ the heart does.
Talk about an Oprah aha moment ~ it was a push that was needed.
I no longer hold onto things because of who gave them to me.
I have purged and purged items from our home.
I go through my closet at the change of every season.
So letting go of the stuff ~ I am getting there.
I still have a few things that I just cannot part with yet but there is still time.
Now if I can just get my dear husband to clean out his closet!
