I haven’t posted in six weeks.
Because I haven’t done any formal decluttering for six weeks.
I have been enjoying the wide open spaces of our decluttered lower level. There’s room enough to really get moving to my exercise videos; room to move and room to breathe!
So today as I was wrapping gifts for my family…
…using a recycled packing box and a roll of gift paper from the substantial (albeit well-culled) stash amassed by my husband’s deceased first wife…
…I pulled off the last square yard of paper and exposed the naked cardboard core…
… and felt the satisfaction of having put to GOOD USE something we’d held onto.
(Later I emptied into the day’s third load of laundry the last specks of detergent from a similarly historical box of Tide.)
The emptied core and box are in the recycle bin.
Our house is beginning to breathe freely.
