It’s time for another of these threads because I just loaded 6 boxes of stuff to donate to a local animal shelter thrift store and I am very happy about it. The boxes contain a lot of knick-knacky stuff that I got stuck with when my mom went into assisted living. There is no sentimental value attached to any of it. My mother was developing a bit of a hoarding problem and was always buying stuff with the intention of giving it to other people or starting a collection of this or that.
I was actually making progress with my own home when I got stuck with all this stuff of my mother’s. I wanted to go through it and sort it all to check for special items or sentimental items but my own issues made it a very long process. I held on to some of it for too long because I kept thinking I’d have a yard sale since I could use a little extra money but I realized that would be more of a hassle than it’s worth. I foster kittens for a local animal shelter and decided to give the stuff to them, get a receipt and claim it on my taxes, hence why I want to get as much of this done as I can before the end of the year. I still have more stuff to deal with, much of it my own, but I feel like I made a lot of progress today.
So anyone else want to share their de-cluttering victories?
