I hate waste.
I have a hard time looking at something that is still good and throwing it away. Not because I need it but because it will be wasted. I've been trying to clean and organize for our move and all my drawers and closets are filled with miscellaneous things I don't need and don't remember having.
I've had to become hard core. It doesn't matter if it's still in good condition. If I haven't seen or used it in years, and can't imagine ever needing it, I'm getting rid of it. Most of the stuff is going to salvation army so it will get a good home. Maybe. It just won’t be cluttering up my closets.
If I can’t stand to let some plastic piece of junk go, how much more does it hurt to let my own life go to waste? I’m going to clean, de-clutter, find time to write and live to the fullest. Because I can throw away clutter, but I won’t throw away myself.
