I understand we want to get the most for our buck but sometimes it ends up weighing us down.May 29, 2023 at 8:42 pm #82527Sherry
This is something I’m currently grappling with. Thank you for the reminder.May 29, 2023 at 8:42 pm #82528Catherine
I am trying to be a minimalist. I throw stuff when it is not needed. I donate stuff when I think other people can use it.May 29, 2023 at 8:43 pm #82529Sue
I threw out some face cream the other day. There wasn’t much left, but I was just done with it.May 29, 2023 at 8:43 pm #82530Korey
The more stuff you have, the more you have to manage.May 29, 2023 at 8:44 pm #82531Kelli
OMG, you’re not kidding. I needed to have some work done on my kitchen sink last week, and before the plumber got here I cleaned out underneath there. Good lord, I had tiny bits left in so many bottles and jars of cleaning products under there – I threw out an entire trash bag full of just dried up old products.May 29, 2023 at 8:44 pm #82532Janell
I grew up with a mom and grandparents that had the “keep everything in case you need it” attitude. I am trying so hard to break away from that. I saw the results when my grandma passed and I had to help clean out her house. I see the results in my mom’s house now. I refuse to bury myself and my family in stuff because I “might” need it. I throw away or donate.May 29, 2023 at 8:44 pm #82533Patricia
I moved 4 years ago. I got rid of everything I didn’t use or want. I had been there 5 years and had several boxes that never even got unpacked. Since then I e been really good about being extremely selective on what comes into my home. I use the Buy Nothing group to borrow things I need for a short time. Even if it’s free I do t want it forever. LolMay 29, 2023 at 8:44 pm #82534Catherine
One thing I struggle with is just persisting on trying to get some money back from items I no longer need through resale and feeling bogged down when it doesn’t sell…. hubs and I set up a timer – if it’s not gone in 1 week it just needs to be donated/trashed. Get rid of it if it doesn’t serve you.
