Endless Spring Cleaning!
April 16, 2018 12:18pm CST
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.
@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
@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.
I was like that when i was a teenager. Now that i have kids, i usually spend my Saturday nights de cluttering everything... this way, i got to spend time with my kids and teach them to declutter the things on their school bags.
