Purge of the Day: Cold Weather Accessories

I feel bad that I didn't get these out sooner. At least they'll be keeping people warm going forward. A big reason I'm driven to keep going and going with the purges is that I know there are still things in my possession that would do much more good in someone else's. 

I've been thinking a lot recently about the meaning of objects, and about the ones that leave me cold (no pun intended). I've been feeling a lot over the last few years like I'm standing next to a wall of static and my real life is on the other side.  It keeps getting scarier as I get older and time goes faster. I have to root out the useless things that occupy my time and figure out what it is that I would do if I had a few minutes to do nothing.

I smell pizza. I made lunch and then started writing this and now I'm making myself miserable smelling the pizza. It's prosciutto-jalapeno-pineapple-parmesan pizza, so you understand my predicament. Imma go eat.

First of all, I have a completely irrational desire to keep every piece of winter wear I have ever purchased because I keep hoping that we'll move back north. (Or at least a little closer to being out of the south!) But you're right to get rid of things because you know they will benefit someone else's life... A great way to look at it, and motivation for me to start purging some of our things.

Second, just reading the toppings on that pizza has my mouth watering! Sooo delicious.
