And then I laugh, because I know me. I know that I assign sentimental value to everything that comes into my possession which makes shedding myself of things so difficult. Compared to my husband, I have a lot of stuff. With where life has taken him and how many times he has moved, he has become quite skilled minimizing his personal belongings.
It's a process, but I'm becoming better at being mindful of what I buy and why... I think.
It may not look like much, but life got lighter on Sunday when I donated this stuff to Goodwill.
9 pairs of shorts/pants
2 pairs of jeans
6 pairs of shoes
16 pieces of jewelry
A box filled with hair accessories
Seasonal home decor
Miscellaneous odds and ends
On one hand, this was a lesson in materialism. On the other, I supported my community by helping to create jobs at Goodwill. I'll let you take a wild guess at which explanation helps me sleep at night.
To confirm, we did not donate Boone to Goodwill.
Are you a regular Goodwill donor? Or thrifter?
"Thrift Shop," anyone? ;)
