stuff it ….

25 Oct

rearrange deckchairsHow is it, that we seem to accumulate so much STUFF ?

I almost feel embarrassed at the amount of useless junk that is tucked away in this house ‘just in case’ …. So today, while finding homes for a couple of lovely birthday gifts, I was thrown into that ‘moving deckchairs on the Titanic’ spin.

Now I’m pretty good at being ruthless, can easily discard stuff and clear those decks … but somehow the stuff just comes back. And the time has to be just right… today just wasn’t that day.

I opened cupboards and draws to discover stuff that I had completely forgotten…. and have probably forgotten again, 8 hours later…..stuff that I no longer like … stuff that I never did like…and stuff that no longer serves a purpose….so WHY do I need all this STUFF ?

Yeah, I know I’m beginning to sound like a hoarder … but no I’m actually far from that, I’m just an outa-sight-outa-mind stuff 2kinda girl, so once things are securely stashed… I’m likely to overlook them (unless they’re a daily essential). I love to be surrounded with a minimum of clutter, so the temptation to hide things if there’s a gap or a bit of cupboard space is very tempting.  I’ll find a way to fill it, stash it, or jam it in, in an effort to maintain the calm visual exterior.

BUT I feel a massive cupboard detox coming ~ just waiting on those planets to align and then …charity bin look out ….again !!
