Massive Clean Out

For the last several years, I've had many of my things stored in the house I formerly lived in (due to the graciousness of my former housemate!). One of the things I really wanted to do in Maryland was to go through it. I planned to give much of it away and catalog what I kept so I no longer wonder what I have and will be aware before buying duplicates. 

I think having stuff I use is fine, but especially stuff just being stored can be a burden. I wanted to cut my belongings down as much as I could. It ended up being a big project, but I'm really happy with the results. I got rid of about 2/3 of my stored clothes, toiletries, and etc and organized the rest, taking videos and pictures of the layers in the box for future reference:

I hope I'm not a gypsy for much longer. Regardless, living lean and simply is incredibly freeing. I still have much more than I need but this a step in the right direction!


  1. Hey love, you know you still have a couple storage boxes at the place on Arden Circle? Deb's happy to pack them to NW WA when she moves in the spring; that ought to be more convenient than fetching them from CO, but give her a call if it isn't!


    1. Oh my goodness, Marti, I didn't realize that! Haha, I'd been wondering where some of my college things ended up. If it wouldn't be a hassle to get them to WA, that would be sooo nice, but if it is just let me know.
