We’re only 5 or so boxes and a pantry sorting party away from being completely packed. It still feels overwhelming in here – stacks of boxes consume our small living room and every time I try to walk somewhere I inevitably snag my foot or leg against a box or a Goodwill donation. We’re donating three more bags of miscellaneous items, 3 book shelves, and an old TV to Goodwill on Monday. It feels really good to know that we have managed to get rid of all that plus at least 5 bags of trash and 4 bags I donated a few weeks ago. I feel like such a hoarder. Why have I held onto every piece of paper I’ve acquired since high school? I even found my career placement handbook from the 8th grade.
Every time I move, I promise myself that I’ll sort and organize better the next time around. But this time I’m being honest with myself; I will still inadvertently hoard small items. Hopefully I’ll manage to develop a clearer organization system.
I’m very excited to get to unpacking and decorating at the new place. I just need a few book cases, a long table or desk, some curtain rods, paint, and a lot of RIT dye to get my projects started.
