This was traumatic because there was a ton of stuff that was unusable that I was keeping for sentimental reasons. Or really ugly that I was keeping for sentimental reasons. I had to be tough. Am I going to wear this again? Yes or no? As per usual, the no pile got divided into trash or donation.
I read a fantastic tip a while back: if you’re sentimental about something you’ll never use again, take a picture of it and give the actual object away. It saves a ton of space. I thought about doing this with some of the jewelry, but then I thought to myself, “I never want to look at a picture of that.” So why was it so hard to purge it? In any case, it’s gone now, and I am the teensiest bit calmer and happier than I was when I woke up this morning. And I’ll probably start wearing jewelry more because I can actually see the things I love when I open up my jewelry box. Yay!
