You know that expression - I believe it came froma movie and refers to a dog's attention span. Well it pretty much describes me these days.
I got into those buckets and that just snow balled. While I THOUGHT I had all the buckets of odd ball fabric - I was WRONG. When I was looking for a basket to put something in - I spied yet ANOTHER big blue bucket. Hmmm - what is in there. Oh dear - THAT is the bucket with the fashion fabric - that means that the one I thought had the fashion fabric has something else.!!!!!!!!!!
Then while I was sewing up something so totally off the TO DO list, I was listening to an audio book. Finished the novel and OH MY - I have this book by Gail Blanke - Throw Out 50 Things.
GO TO THE WEB SITE. It is pretty cool. So the first part is the bedroom. And I am pumped - I went through the hanging stuff in the closet last night and grabbed some stuff. ACK - most I haven't worn in years yet all has a few memories that I don't want to get rid of? Or do I?????
As I spun my heart out in spin class this morning, I got to thinking about my clothes. Seriously????? What do I wear? Jeans and T-shirts. So why do I keep everything else?????? I am so PUMPED to go through EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING in that bedroom and PITCH PITCH PITCH. I hope I feel as pumped when I get home from Monday Motivators!!!!!
OK - so are you with me????? I am not sure how much of her book is on the web site - but the idea is to pitch 50 things. And if you pitch magazines - that counts as ONE THING. I am so ready to do all the house - BUT not the sewing room - well I guess I have been working on that.
Anyway - I took pictures of what happened in the sewing room yesterday and I will do the bedroom (it is pretty sparse in there anyway) but still clothes can go!!!!! And I am going to be ruthless and NOT LOOK BACK.
Again - are you with me????? Here are some tips -
I have sweaters - do I wear them? Certain ones - no!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because I prefer dressing in layers so I can undress as I need if I get hot or cold. Sweaters - GONE. Jackets - and a suit that I don't wear - GONE. Just wait - this just might be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!! FIFTY things - and you get to make a list!!!! I don't know that I can make 50, but I am going to try. And even if I get one or two rooms done - I am OK with that.
We hav ONE WEEK to deal with the bedroom. Extra pillows - that collect dust - GONE. Floower arrangements that you don't like - GONE. Need new lamps - GET THEM. Clean out the bed side table. Rugs on the floor? - GET RID OF THEM if you don't like them.
I will do before and after - you will see - I literally only have clothes to get rid of in the bedroom.
OK - have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
