Can I just take a moment?

Can I just take a moment to pat myself on the back? Last night I went through a phase that doesn't happen all that often.  When it does, I take full advantage, because I know it'll go away pretty soon!

I've seen all the hype on getting organized and decluttered to kick off the new year, so I hopped on that wagon for a minute.  I cleaned under my kitchen sink, and I was even able to get rid of a few t-shirts.  I promise, one day someone will turn me into Hoarders because of my t-shirt obession!  I don't let myself buy them anymore, because I have a real problem of getting rid of them.  It's a sentimental thing for me. 

I also went through a few kitchen drawers and this laundry basket that stuff was thrown into when I moved from college.  Ok, soooo, I also have an obsession with pens, too, but I was able to go through them and pack up most of them to send off to school with my mom (teacher). 

Next, I found a few blankets that were in a trash bag in a closet just sitting there that I got out to donate to our local humane society.  I don't need or use them, why not give them to someone who does?

This was all a very big step for me. I don't like getting rid of my things.  I'm always thinking one day I'm going to need this.  Or, one day I'm going to wish I had that...

I'm so proud =)

This is something, however, that I'm not proud of.

Yes, that's a mouse trap. Better safe than sorry!

So, it's not a whole lot, but it is a good start!

INSPIRING! I'm the SAME way about getting rid of things, so I only get around to it when the mood strikes. And then, I'm on a mission. I'm also a t-shirt hoarder. Trying to be better. Admitting is the first step, right?

Great start! Every bag that goes is one less bag you have to deal with! We all have things we love for "whatever" reason so beat yourself up to bad.

Hope you have a great day!

Found you at the link up party We're Organized Wed.
