While spring is still several weeks away, I've been getting the itch to do a little spring cleaning.
Not just tidying up and organizing (though that is sadly need and will be done), but cleaning out things I don't need and just generally simplifying my life - in all aspects. It's part of the reason I left Job #2 - I was just starting to feel overwhelmed.
Dave an I have already done it with our diets - there is very little processed food left in the house - mostly canned goods, cereal and crackers.
I do it frequently with my closet - two or three times a year, I clean it out and ship what I'm not wearing off to my best friend. It's kinda sad that I can do that and never run out of clothes. I love to shop, especially for clothes and shoes. I've been really good and haven't bought a new pair of shoes since I bought my big girl shoes. I'm going to try to do the same thing with clothes. When you can go two months without doing a load of laundry (yes.. I can - yes... I have) - you probably don't need any new clothes.
I want to go through the entire house and get rid of the clutter - anything we don't use/need - I want it gone.
And lucky for you knitters... that means yarn too.
Yesterday I went through my stash. I filled up two garbage bags (yes, Sam...TWO garbage bags...) full of acrylic yarn I am just never going to use. Sam and her sister are going to go through it and whatever is left I'll probably donate to a seniors' centre. Most of it was from my grandmother and great aunt. My intention was to use it to make baby stuff and afghans... but I just really don't enjoy knitting with it... and if you're not enjoying knitting... what's the point?
I've also put several more luxurious knitting items up on my destash on Ravelry. There's some Debbie Bliss, Rowan and more. Please take a look and if there is anything you're interested in - let me know!
All items are from a smoke free home...
But.... as you know...
... it's not pet-free.
