Feels So Good To Have Less Stuff
Things removed from my house the past two days:
- 1 bag of clothes (mine)
- 1 box of books
- 1 rocking chair
- 1 port-a-cot
- 1 baby blanket
- 3 candle holders
- 1 serviette holder
- 1 half finished crochet project
- 3 pairs of shoes (one pair went in the bin)
- 5 towels
- 2 balls of wool
- 1 foam floor puzzle
So I’m on a bit of a roll here. Taking something out every day. I still have a long way to go.
I’m thinking of getting rid of all but one towel per person. At the moment there is more than that. I don’t even know how many, and they float about the house in varying stages of the cycles between clean and dirty, hanging over door knobs, in the dryer, on the floor. If each person had their own towel, they could take care of it. I could wash them all at the same time. Dry them and put them back. So simple. And who says you can’t use a regular towel when swimming? — Or do the bright colours on beach towels do something special I don’t know about?
Do you think I should have a couple spare for guests? We don’t often have people come to stay. Perhaps I can have some spare towels but keep them somewhere else.
