Out With The Old And In With More Stuff
Aubrey’s 4th birthday is this week and her big party is next weekend. As she gets bigger, so does all her stuff. Bigger shoes and clothes, bigger toys and more stuff too. I HATE clutter and I’m not a fan of stuff. You will never see me on an episode of Hoarders unless it’s me raiding the hoarder houses and selling all their crap on eBay.
In honor of Aubrey’s birthday, I’m cleaning house and getting rid of as much old stuff as possible to make room for the new. I’m selling tap and ballet shoes, DVDs, some phones, a shredder, a printer, clothes, ink cartridges, shot glasses and more. It’s my virtual garage sale. Woohoo!
I also just took three bags of crap and an old office chair to the Goodwill donation center. What do you do with your STUFF? Do you hold on to things or are you a thrower/seller, like me? If you keep things, what compels you? One last question: Anyone want to buy this wallet?
Moving Stuff & Other Stuff
It is finished!!! And this is NOT an Easter reference. I’m talking about an annual (dreaded) tradition of packing up all my earthly belongings and moving them to a different part of the city. This time, let’s hope I get to stay in one place for longer than a year. MUCH longer. I’ve had it! Read on…
But now that she’s figuring out how retail works, will she go nuts not having “things”? Will the peer pressure be harder on her once she starts school? Am I setting up my daughter to be the subject on a future episode of Hoarders? I doubt it. But if she does end up on that show, I hope I at least get a consultant credit.
