Dejunking VS Decluttering

happy faceI never meant to make her cry but that is what happened when I suggested to Amy that it was time to dejunk. She was ready to make some changes  but dejunking implied that she owned junk and she took offense to that term.

Instead, I should have used the word declutter. It’s less harsh. Lesson learned.

Owning junk can be a painful reminder of how we poorly spent our hard earned money. Owning perfectly good stuff often can show us the same thing.  Why did we buy it? If we could only go back in time and redo. Oh well,  the money is spent and now we go from here.

If calling it clutter makes you feel better then call it clutter.

Regardless of what you call it, you have it. In fact, you have lots of it. Now comes the realization that you don’t need, use or want.beautiful bags

These suitcase bags are the prettiest bags I’ve ever owned.

My problem;

I have never used these bags. For years I haven’t wanted to get rid of them because they are so pretty. It’s not like I haven’t traveled  but I never would chose these bags for trips.  At one point I thought I would try hard and use as a beach bag. After many trips to the beach and…….no. Didn’t happen.

The moment has come. My goodwill bag only needs a few more things to be full and this would do it.

So down they come from the closet and into the bag. Someone out there will enjoy these nice bags.

Moving closer towards minimalism is something I’m liking!
