But before the purging commenced I did bring in some new things but all are useful (and seasonal). I got some really good deals on Christmas clearance. I paid about $12 for everything in this picture--including a 4 ft. pre-lit tree, 15 rolls of wrapping paper, 24 ornaments, 700 white lights, a stocking and some random decorations. Not bad at all. The tree was $1.99 and the wrapping paper came out to .19 cents a roll. I won't have to but wrapping paper for a long time. Now everything is packed neatly away for next year.
I didn't really take pictures of the amount of stuff I took from the hall closet to the consignment shop. I thinned out my bags, coats, scarves, etc. It felt great to get those things out of my house. I don't really care about making money on any of it, but any little bit helps (to buy new stuff--ha).
I'm also trying to get through all the magazines that have been piling up for the last 6 months. And I still have to tackle my closet and drawers and the bookshelves. But it's it sure feels good to begin cleaning out all of the clutter. And I'm working on the mental clutter too....
