Unpacking = Success!

So the past two weeks have been filled with unpacking and getting rid of a ton of stuff I don’t use anymore. Essentially a possession cleanse and it felt AMAZING! I’m still not done but I thought I’d take some photos of my progress. Woo photo post!

In case you’re concerned I donated the vast majority of the stuff I wasn’t using to some awesome charities. I also managed to use a recycling bin way more than garbage. *high five*

I’m going to try to do this more often- I’m not much of a hoarder to begin with- but I think it’s really valuable to think about the things that you purchase and how often you use what you own. I like the six month rule, if it hasn’t seen the light of day for that amount of time, set it free. It’s also way easier to let go of something that you haven’t had for ages.

I’m going to be going through my VHS and DVD collection with a fine toothed comb later this month. That’s gonna hurt. I already cleansed the CD collection- time to reconsider some of the films I bought (most of the time solely because they were cheaper than renting or seeing it in theater).

I’m approaching buying things in a different way. For example, no more buying clothing because it’s cheap. I’m only buying clothes when I loooooovvve it. LURVE. No more of this “it’s only $10! That’s a deal!” I may have done that … a lot …

This is the apt prior to any of my stuff being moved in. I left my landlord’s (who is a friend) bed in there because I have a ton of company coming this month for TCAF– so it’ll come in handy.

After the movers came-

The ones I decided to keep organized on my shelf :D
