Endless Spring Cleaning!

I'm not that messy but, like many other youngsters, I tidy up by throwing everything into the drawers and wardrobe. I'm now trying to give a meaning to these drawers and closets. I found two wallets. Not even a piece of paper, EMPTY! Oh well, at least I know what's in there, though I haven't finished yet. It takes a while because I observe every little piece of clutter. I took my time to read the letters my ex's ex wrote to my ex. There's no reason why I should be keeping these letters. Or maybe there is, they can teach me how to be romantic. But I shouldn't be learning from a teen with an awful handwriting. I also made a playlist on Spotify, with songs I haven't listened in a while. I thought of sharing one.

I have endless spring, summer, fall, and winter cleaning ! I used to have a desk drawer filled with old letters . . . I clung onto these letters for years. And then I decided to let go . . . sad to see tangible letters go, but I convinced myself the memories were already stored in my head.

@much2say I wish I had a desk drawer filled with old letters! I don't think of them as memories, but tools to reach memories. They are pointless, but I think I might never get bored of them. The only way to get rid of them, would be to read them every day so eventually I get tired of reading and throw them away.

@sabtraversa Well, in the end, it's just more clutter . Yes, tools to reach memories, true - and if you enjoy, then it's not pointless. But are you sure you want to know the memories of someone else (especially an ex?)

@much2say The memories of my ex remind me of my ex, even if they also deal with the ex's ex. But maybe I'm just crazy.

@august18 I'm not done yet, but I'm taking advantage of the mood of neatness I have, right now. It doesn't happen very often.

@maezee I never know where to place things as the drawers are a mess, this was needed, though it's also fun at the same time.

@sabtraversa Wear a mask and gloves. Especially when you get near the mouse poop left behind.

Good luck with the cleaning! A trip down nostalgia lane with those letters. But I don't blame you. I know of some people who search for and keep handwriting of others. Strangers even, like discarded grocery lists etc

@FayeHazel Thanks! I also have a receipt I don't plan to get rid of. It's all about 'sentimental value' though. I'm not sure I would collect grocery lists of people I don't know. Well, I never had the chance, to be honest. Who knows.

@sabtraversa I don't blame you. I used to save soda pop tabs, bottle tops, from sentimental trips. :-) Actually the grocery list thing looked cool how they did this - pasted them in a scrap book, all the different writing , makes you wonder about the lives of the people who wrote them

@FayeHazel Yes, that's why I don't know what I would do. One can treat each piece as a historical find, or whatever.

@TRBRocks420 I'm so happy there's more space left now. So I can now move the trash and clutter from the drawers to the closets!

I have a tendency to just toss without observing. I probably have tossed a few important things using that method.

@Corbin5 I'm extreme, I sometimes do what you do, but there are times I keep 'trash' because "you never know" or "someone might need this".

@sabtraversa Ok. I understood now. I have a personal channel on Youtube. I uploaded some videos there, taken by me with the smartphone's lens. But NEVER I will have over 1 Million views, where I could get an income.

@alberello75 It's a long way to go, but I don't think it's impossible. You only need a good strategy, perseverance and plenty of luck.

When we did a house shifting a few years back, we found things lost since ages in our cupboards and Almirahs. Actually we ought to be setting and arranging things in Almirahs and cupboards more regularly but we fail to do so.

I'm cleaning and sorting as I pack for our big move. In a couple of weeks as I unpack I'm sure I'll be culling even more.

@kepweng I would love to have a garage sale here, but I doubt it'd be successful. While selling old books, I've been considering that. My bookshelf needs to be 'decluttered' as well.

You are one of those kids I know who is diligent enough to do their chores (unless there is a chore you hate doing). I like cleaning too, that is when I feel my house is too messed up that I need space to breathe.

@mlgen1037 I love to improve the environment around me. But as a perfectionist, it takes time and makes me kind of obsessed, making sure everything is very neat and clean, so I don't do it very often. It's also more satisfying when you do the big chores, not the little ones.

@sabtraversa I agree with you on that. With that being said, I think I need to do a general cleaning of my house.

@MALUSE My boyfriend at the time did some cleaning and found these letters. I was silly enough to ask him the letters instead of throwing them away. I was supposed to throw them away myself, but nope, I still have them.
