    Hard to Let Go

    Sometimes it's just so hard to get rid of the things I don't use much. I've got so much STUFF everywhere. Clothes, kitchen electrics, toiletries, anything... I hang on to it thinking that when I get a bigger place there will be room for it all, and I keep things looking tidy...

    I Got Started, Finally!

    My home has been in chaos for years now. I'm a terrible pack-rat so things just keep on piling and piling... This morning when I woke up I finally started doing something about it and not just thinking (I tend to think too much). I heard that my aunt is arranging a garage sale...
