This morning I asked my husband if we could look for a shelf to put what is on the bottom shelf of my steel table in the basement so I could have the whole table as my craft/writing area.
Twenty minutes later I have a shelf that my husband had in the garage in the back hall.
Holy crap! He was going to use it in the shed, but he told me to use it in the basement and we’ll get another one for the shed at another time.
What amazes me about this whole letting go process is I think about it all of the time! I think about what I’m going to let go of next. I think about how I want to move this here so I can move that there. I think about different storage containers and how I can organize stuff to gain more space.
Ladies and gentlemen this is NOT me. I never thought about stuff like this ever. I bought a container and put stuff in or if there was room in a cabinet I’d stuff something in there. I never thought about function and where something should be placed to be more efficient space and time wise.
I proud to say that this is the person I am becoming and I am very happy about this.
I spent a half hour yesterday on Amazon looking for new canisters to put my flour, sugar, brown sugar in. Plus I went to Kohls and Bed, Bath and Beyond and Walmart to look.
Letting go of stuff is taking up a lot of my time. I haven’t written anything but my blog posts all month.
I’m not complaining. It’s been exhausting, but very good for me. This has been something I’ve needed to do for myself. I have opens spaces in cabinets which leads to open spaces in my life and head.
I have a feeling this is going to continue past October. Probably until I have gone thru every nook and cranny in my house.
This is what I’m letting go of today.
Don’t worry. I still have fifteen more bottles of essential oil in my cabinet and yes I am looking for a cabinet for them. I know they have them at Walmart.
Wow! I’m becoming more organized than I ever have been.
