I know. We become attached.

I have Disney VCR tapes from babysitting days. The baby is not a baby anymore.

I have nail polish galore. I rarely wear nail polish.

I have books on my bookshelf saying, "Hello?"

I have clothes in my closet that are just "there".

My dresser drawers, my desk drawers, ... uuugh

These are just a few examples of my predicament.

How about you?

Now, in aid to my defense, I have donated a lot of my cookbooks and clothes to my church. So, I am not a hoarder.

For example, I have some pencil skirts like new, that I have yet to wear, that I bought at a yard sale. I have ankle length skirts that were bought at a Sears going out of business sale. I really never go to any dressy places. I am always home working. However, there is Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve coming up. So, I see good reason to keep.

As in cookbooks, years ago, I taught myself how to cook. I bought tons of cookbooks from yard sales and thrift stores. Now, that I have been cooking for quite a few years, I have donated quite a few cookbooks...a gift that keeps on giving.

As most de-cluttering instructors tell you, keep some... toss some... donate some...

What is next in my decluttering process?

Tossing out make-up. For example, I have foundation bought at Dollar Tree that makes me look hideous. I now know to always buy the good stuff, although having to pay a little more, but I do not want to look like a clown.

If you want to see a whole list of what to de-clutter, read THIS ARTICLE.

What am I happy I did not throw out and became of good use? I went to a yard sale and bought a ton of scarves. The scarves are being used as fabric to make wreathes with. Another example of keeping some.

I hope you have found this article to be of some help.
