Slice of Life: Happiness is Found in Memories 23 of 31
It seemed the perfect day to tackle my closet. It was time to clear out some of the items I had been hanging onto for far too long. I began pulling things out, sorting items into piles, and trying to begin to weed out what needed to go. It wasn't long until I managed to get the clothing and the shoes under control, and then moved onto the bags. Somehow I have quite a collection of old wallets and all those small cosmetic bags that are given away for free. I'm really not sure why I hang onto them. I could hold my year's supply of cosmetics in my hand.
For me the best way to keep my closet under control is to only allow a particular amount of space for things I need. Pants have so much room in the closet. Shoes have a spot. Sweaters must fit on the shelf. I have a cloth box I use to store the wallets and bags I plan to keep. They need to all fit inside of the container which means a few needed to go.
Has I picked up a bag, then a wallet, then another bag, I shook my head. I suddenly understood how my grandma had so many bags. I really only use a bag or two of the twenty I put back into the container. Why I hang onto them, I have no idea. Maybe I'm a little like my grandma.
For the month of March I will be participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers. It will be a busy month of writing, commenting, and learning with this community. This year I've decided to try to focus my writing around happiness. Stop by today's link up to join the conversation or find some great reading.
