How is it going? Have you been able to fill at least 7 bags full of stuff you don’t need anymore? If you have, I bet you’re feeling pretty good, right? I love that feeling of dropping stuff off at the donation center. Feel like a weight has been lifted! I know, sometimes, it can be tough, though. It’s hard when you’re not exactly sure if you should part with something or not. You haven’t used it recently, but who knows, you might someday? Below are a few roadblocks, along with solutions that might cross your path as you attempt to fill those bags”
#1 “I Might Need It Someday!” But ask yourself when was the last time you actually DID use it? I always say, if you haven’t used it in a year, you’re probably not likely to use or need it.
#2 “It Cost a Lot of Money, Though!” What is it costing you NOW to store that item? It could be taking up prime real estate space that you could be using more efficiently. Plus, you can always sell it on Ebay or Craigs List. That’s actually one of my services, if you want to make some money on your stuff, but just don’t have time to do it.
#3 “It was a Gift Given to Me” It’s really not the gift, as much as the love behind the gift that’s important. I try to look at it from the giver’s perspective, in that, I would hate if if someone only kept a gift I had given them out of guilt. That totally wasn’t the point! I’d much rather have them give it to someone who would appreciate it.
Those are just a few roadblocks that might come your way through this process of filling those 40 bags. If you need a little encouragement or motivation, give me a call or send me an email and I’d be happy to talk you through it!
What roadblocks give YOU a hard time when purging??
All the best,
