Sunday Update: Bye Bye

Giving clothes away

Five bags of clothes, a bag of bags and box of books!

It’s time to let go.

Things have got to go.  There’s no reason to hold on to clothes that no longer fit.  I’ve been reading the book “the life changing magic of tidying up” by Marie Kondo about the KonMari Method for simplifying, organizing and storing.  She says if the item doesn’t fit and even if it does and it no longer sparks joy, it’s time for it to go.

Bless it, thank it for the good times and say good bye.

I have a friend who passes on some items to me and now I’ve found someone who I can pass on items to as well.  The beauty of this is that the clothing we purchased, we bought because we loved it.  Now someone else can love it.  And if they don’t – we simply ask them to give it to someone else!

    I love your Sunday updates! Isn’t it a good feeling to pack up some of those clothes?

    When we can let go of things we love, we create more room for new blessings. Trust me – I have a closet full of clothes that managed to populate themselves somehow.

    You just reminded me it is time to purge again. 🙂

    Sara – it is!
    Denise – right? how does that happen? 🙂
