A journey of a thousand miles

It was a long weekend here in Canada.  I’m off next week to do my duty to my late parents, so I wasn’t too worried about finding some time to relax.  DH was off to the Jazz Festival every evening (he emcees) so I knew I would be staying close to home.

Friday evening we discovered the pizza place we had spotted during a walk delivered exceptional taste (and a polite delivery guy).

Saturday we found the perfect light/mirror for our bathroom.

Sunday I had a pedicure.  Then I discovered that the light we had picked out for our bedside wall-mounted-desk-lamps would not be suitable for that purpose.  Back to the internets to search for just the right one.

Monday I helped with the painting of the basement suite in DD and DSIL’s home.  Then I cleared out a whole 1/2 a box from our storage space to leave for Big Brothers.

It is ridiculous how good that half-box of stuff removed from our lives made me feel.  It’s just some perfectly good linen and books, un-needed by us, that will perhaps be of use to someone else.  Decluttering a little bit every month will be a good habit to form for now…and for our future uncluttered life.

If you need more inspiration, here’s an article on 12 Ways a Deep Decluttering Can Improve Your Life from WiseBread.  Lots of good reasons why getting rid of your stuff is a great idea.  One caveat:  the article says if you donate goods to a charity you can get a tax deduction.  We checked out lots of charities when we were getting rid of some really nice furniture, and no one would give us a tax receipt for them.
