I’ve shared in previous posts that I’ve minimized my belongings enough to fit the rig that I will be purchasing. Well, I took another look at the items left and after giving another once over, I was able to rid myself of three more bags of clothing, and a box of shoes, handbags and misc. items. A girl can get used to this!
I was so overjoyed that I could donate more that I didn’t even sleep last night – – I stayed up and did more “loose end tying” in regard to my business (I’ll talk about that at a later date,) and at around 5:45am, I made my way to the Salvation Army and dropped the goods :).
Words really can’t explain how liberating it is to break out of the material mold that I’ve lived in for many years. I was never materialistic per se, but I didn’t skimp on the finer things, either. I was and still am very wise in my purchases – – this was never so true as when I sold my furniture on CL and at my sales. I sold most of it for more than what I paid initially. Yayyy me! There’s something to be said for buying unique goods that aren’t trendy or “faddish”.
So, having lost a few more unexpected pounds in personal belongings, I think I’ll probably repeat the process once more just to make sure I’m keeping what I need and donating what others are in need of immediately. Life is so good, and it’s looking even better by the day!
