Yep, it's still full steam ahead and all that. By the time I'm finished, all that will be left in our storeroom will be items of sentimental importance and the things we don't have space for in the kitchen.
My drawers and closets are done. I no longer have any clothes I don't wear. I'm not saving anything I have any hope of getting into ever again. That stuff has been gone a long time now. I've surrendered on that battlefront. Not gonna happen. I had shoes I'd never even worn.
But then, I really don't like wearing shoes at all. In a perfect world, I'd be living in a climate where only sandals and flip-flops would be needed. And no heels!
I dumped a lot of makeup last year. I seldom wear it anymore--one of the advantages of getting older. Too much is, well, too much.
Collin's been busy, too. He's digitized our entire DVD collection. Now, everything is on external hard drives. With them, our Kindles and our smartphones, we can now store all of our books, magazines, photos, music and movies in one small drawer. Digitizing is a great space-saver.
I even turned one of my older Kindles into a digital cookbook. Amazon offers several e-cookbooks free or for a very low price. Not that it's going to get much use. I'm still a terrible cook. I microwave. I order takeout. I use my Crock-Pot when I can find a recipe that doesn't require any of the ingredients be pre-cooked. (Come on...isn't that what Crock-Pots are for--convenience?)
Decluttering can also be profitable. Collin took several of our DVDs to V-Stock--and got just over $84 for them. They sure sell better than used books these days!
The most important decluttering task, however, is decluttering the mind. That's next. It really should have been first--but I tend to do things backward, like reading the end of a book first.
