Finally Purging

November 11th, 2016 at 04:31 am

I have finally made progress on purging. It feels great! Some of it has been hard, but I haven't regretted getting rid of anything yet.

I paired my clothes down to a third. Some was easy as I do not fit in much. Some was hard like some memory shirts and favorite clothes that reminded me way too much of my ex. I went half and half konmari on it. I had to keep some things that were funtional, even though I do not particularly care for it, because otherwise I would be severely lacking. No money (or really time) for a wardrobe makeover quite yet.

I also have purged papers like no other. I still have a ton, but am down to a fifth of what I had. Helps now that most of that stuff is online. No need to keep historical payments, bills, etc anymore. I managed to get rid of stuff from middle school on! It helped that I finally accepted that my past likes and hobbies are in the past. They helped shaped me, but they have no bearing on me now. I could finally let go.

I still have a ton of physical things I need to purge and sort, but i am happy with where I am now. The rest can wait for a rainy, or snowy, weekend.

Money-wise, I am still in a holding pattern. Spending is still only joint liabilities, gas, and groceries. Tight, but still able to have a little "mad money" as needed to spoil me and the kids (talking like $10 a week). I am noticing that I am spending less and less mad money each week as we adjust to this new life. It feels good.

I cannot wait for the new year. I am working on a goal of new year = happy, healthy and strong new me. I am already headed in the right direction, so i just need to keep moving that way!

    Congratulations. I got as far as the paper purge, but then got stalled. Paper defeats me. But I will get back to it when things settle down for me.
