The last couple of days have been interesting to say the least...

I have been cleaning out the basement and, well some of the stuff is just weird what I have found in boxes. Things that I thought at the time I saved them were important.

Being a pack-rat, I know why I saved them, but it is sure making it hard to de-clutter. All of the stuff is good stuff.

This move and forced de-cluttering is making me reevaluate my choices on what is important to me.

I am continually asking myself, do I really need it. Could I buy something that will be more efficient for this, do I really want to store this and (if it is a technology type item) will better technology be out there in a couple years? Most of the time I am answering "no I don't really want to store it" and "yes, something better will be out there in 2 years".

On the other hand, it is difficult to part with some things. That is where I am finding favorite websites are coming into play. Freecycle and Craigslist are becoming increasingly valuable in this purging process.

Craigslist is a place you can post stuff you have for sale and trade, barter... give away... whatever. Freecycle is a place you can post free stuff you have to give away. Both of them are awesome. I have been able to get rid of so much. And I know that the stuff will be appreciated in their new homes.

Untill later... Lori
