I’ll admit that this month was/will be one of the easier months of 7. It honestly didn’t affect my day-to-day activities, and only people who knew that I was doing 7 knew what I was doing this month. With my class schedule and my work schedule, I didn’t necessarily “give” something away each and every day. I did have a goal of 210 things (7 things a day x 30 days = 210 things) to give away, and I went over that goal for sure.
While cleaning out drawers/closets/cabinets, I came up with a few observations about the things I’ve kept over the years that I don’t use anymore.
- Just because it came from Gap, JCrew, Banana Republic, etc. does NOT mean that I have to keep it. If it doesn’t fit/I don’t like it anymore, I don’t need to keep it.
- Just because I have a coupon and Gap, JCrew, Banana Republic, etc. has a sale going on does NOT mean that I need to buy anything. Just because it is a good deal doesn’t mean that it is worth spending money on.
- Just because an aunt/friend/family member gave me that scarf/purse/book does NOT mean that I have to keep it. They will probably NEVER know if I keep it or don’t, and if it’s not being used, get rid of it!
- Just because I can buy a book doesn’t mean that I need to (this one is still hard for me to grasp). There are things called libraries for a reason. I can justify buying books I know I’ll want to write in or have for a while, but there are some books that are fun to read once but I’ll never read again. Those I should’ve gotten from the library, not wasted money on.
