I am so proud of myself that I have removed 106 items in the past 15 weeks. Although I have started many decluttering projects before. I hate to admit it, but I used to have my things in other peoples’ houses. It was challenging since I don’t drive, so I’m not about to take containers on the bus and take up so many seats. That just doesn’t sound too beneficial or nice for the other people who want to sit on the bus, too. Because I wasn’t able to travel to retrieve my belongings, I was only able to examine the items that I had around me.
Looking back at it now, I should have only brought the items I enjoyed to my boyfriend’s mom’s house when I was slowly starting to move in there. But that’s okay.
I would like to think that since I have started dating my boyfriend I probably have donated about 400 items, which is really amazing because that’s in the course of five years. I definitely feel a lot lighter. I did a bit of decluttering a year before I had met him for when my mom and I moved out of my childhood house into a two bedroom place.
Today’s item is another package of incents. I used to be so obsessed with these. I had three packages of different flavours, so I can use different scents throughout the day. But these were one of the things that I had left at my mom’s when I had moved into my boyfriend’s family’s house. That was so long ago that they no longer smell.
