the dreaded storage area

This week I finally bit the bullet and headed over to the storage area that I had been avoiding. It was kind of a weird experience. I got almost a viceral reaction to cleaning this place. Ever watch "Clean Sweep" and see crazy nutbag packrats crying over the thought of giving away a broken set of dishes? That was me. Only I wasn't crying. And it wasn't dishes.

I finally resolved my issues and got down to clearing and cleaning!

February 23: A hat and gloves into the donation bag.

February 24: A wallet I had gotten as a present and never used. I never will. But I know somebody who would like it. I put it in the "re-gifting box".

February 25:A fleece that I haven't worn in years into the donation bag.

Feb 26: A sweatshirt into the donation bag.

Feb 27: I have a giant oversized sweater that I used to wear with leggings and cuff boots. Seriously. I loved that sweater. I still kind of do, its really soft and warm. But its completely out of style. And huge. And purple. I sort of looked like Grimace when I wore it. It might fit a plus sized person like a normal sweater. Donation bag.

Feb 28: Laundry day! A towel in the donation bag.

March 1: A box into the recycling pile.

Next week, I'm hitting the rubbermade boxes.
