The not so annual event resulted in 3 giant trash bags and sore hamstrings. Three bags is actually a light load. My last ‘get rid of stuff and organize’ marathon extended over 3 weekends and resulted in 15 bags for donation or trash.
What I found in stuffapalooza 2012:
I crossed paths with this list on the way out from the grocery store. I wondered, did someone lose it on the way in or on the way out? Did he/she remember everything on the list? If not, did they go back for the item or do without? Lists are a great way to organize your thoughts and activities. Perhaps, many of them turn into brainstorming diaries that need to be edited for accuracy and relevance. I found yet another washing machine crumpled wad of paper in my pants’ pocket yesterday. Had I written a vital piece of information on it? Was it someone I planned to call? …something I needed to get at the store? I will never know, and have chosen not to care. If the universe needs me to address something, it will come back to my attention. So, sorry if I promised to call you.
