Reason To Shred Your Own Cheese!
Nov 29, 2015
Every possible space in my bedroom has been taken over by clothing that may have another wearing in it. Definitely a child of children of the Depression am I. I have been dogged by this problem all my life. Several years ago, a young friend finally shamed me into whittling down a PILE of painting shorts to one pair. As she said, "Do you plan to paint walls day-after-day for weeks at a time?" The right question to ask is not whether I might have an off-chance of getting another use out of something but rather what I need in my wardrobe.
So, the question isn't "Can I get another couple of wearings out of that ripped turtle-neck by wearing it under a sweater?" But instead, "How many turtlenecks do I need. Keep the best/favorites and toss the rest." "Toss," of course, includes "donate" for good stuff but even Goodwill doesn't want a stained and ripped turtleneck!
So, I've written myself an outline of what I need and tomorrow I'm hitting the bedroom with a box of garbage bags! Wish me luck!
