A huge THANK YOU to Ronni Bennett who posted this video at her blog in a marvelous post titled Letting Go of Stuff, in which she considers her upcoming move from Portland, Maine to........Portland, Oregon!
It's a great post and I highly recommend reading it.
I needed to see this video more than I can say! The photos here tell you why.
These shots are the ones I took of the upstairs room last June. I finally have the guts to share them, mainly, I guess, because I'm involved in a project downstairs that makes me feel less guilty that the upstairs room is still filled with stuff I do not want. I do not want it so much, in fact, that I do not want to even look at it.......which is a huge problem because I must sort in order to organize. In my defense I must add that quite a lot of this junk has been given away and/or taken to our storage unit in the past months. Maybe now by posting these shots I will find renewed energy to complete this horrid task. Will keep you posted.
I have not worn any of these clothes in over a year. In fact, I will probably never wear the majority of them again. Office suits (i.e., Nordstrom and Jones New York)? I left work in 2000. I sold and gave away four suits soon after, but the rest need to go...
Ideas are welcomed.
