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 by 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.
@thehousewife Hehe. I'm also cleaning and decluttering in case someone here decides to move. My parents have been checking apartments for rent or sale for some time, I'm trying to gain a little of advantage in case they succeed.
