I've decided to significantly simplify my life and household. This mindset has been evolving over the past few months, but this week I decided that I just plainly have too much stuff!

I'd already decided to have a yard sale with my neighbors and some friends, so the early planning stages were already in place. So starting today I'm taking it to the next level. I decided I'm going to completely comb through every item in every room, closet or cabinet in our home and rid myself/ourselves of anything that we don't use, don't need or don't want. I'm going to utilize the suggestion of Trent at www.thesimpledollar.com and physically touch every item and decide if it is important to me/us or if I would be okay if it were gone. I've already mentioned to both my mother and mother-in-law that I'm not going to be able to keep things around anymore just because so-and-so bought it for me. I told them that if there was anything they had given me that they for sure didn't want me yard-saling to let me know and if it ends up on my list I will make sure they get it back.

This time, I'm serious! I'm going to get back to basics and reclaim my space!

I'll let you know how it progresses.

Good luck to you!

I have put some items in a donate bag as we cleaned out our closet in preparation for sanding the floors. Yay!
