My Autumnal clear-out is taking a lot longer than I thought. Just getting through the basic sorting of items I can see is more of a mountain than a molehill. I really wanted to sort through all those items I cannot see – those items stored in cupboards and boxes; books shelved behind other books; drawers of medications and beauty products left unused – but time is getting away from me. There is just so much I should (need?) to look at and assess. Do I really need it? Will I ever use it? Would somebody else benefit from it? Should I just throw it out?
It may be Samhain before I have it all done, but it needs to be done. I want it done. I feel like I am living in a dungeon, surrounded by towers of books, DVDs, CDs, clothes that no longer fit, shoes I never wear (but really, really love), and knick-knacks I bought because I liked them, but for which I really have no space.
I hope to dispose of quite a lot of my unnecessary possessions via Freegle, charity shops, Ebay and Amazon marketplace, but I may run out of time, and patience, so it may all end up with charity shops.
I have taken a few minutes to write this post, but I really must crack on – time is running away.
Anyone else have a clear out at this time of year?
