Admittedly, most other the "clutter" was behind doors or in drawers, but I did have a lot of stuff that I didn't use. About sixteen trash bags and smaller boxes-worth! I have spent about four days going through closets, cabinets and the garage. Most of my stuff was tablecloths and dishes. I used to entertain about once a month, but I don't anymore. Good-bye! I have made the difficult, but I think correct, decision to leave the club I volunteered for for nearly four years. I probably will move on to another group soon, so this time, I wanted to make sure my house was stripped of un-needed stuff before doing so. I want to start with a clean slate this time. I always felt guilty for volunteering when I knew I should be home cleaning. I'm a neat-freak, and it bothers me when the house isn't very clean and organized. My house never got anywhere near bad, but I found myself leaving things around, meaning to put them away later--like 4 weeks later. One of the reasons I'm leaving the club is that I have to work directly in the kitchen with a borderline hoarder, and I can't take it anymore. And I don't want to become like her. She'd do the same thing, but the stuff would stay there for many years. Quite a bit of the junk I'm getting rid of consisted of kitchen items I donated there (I didn't take a tax break, so I still own them). I'm having VVA pick them up this week. I also want to spend more time with my four sweet kittens and their mom! I also have to sweep the downstairs floors a lot more to keep up with so many new cats in the house!
