I just spent two hours upstairs in my bedroom getting rid of stuff. How do we accumulate so much. There were outfits in my closet with tags on them. So I ended up with three bags of clothes to donate and still more to do.

It always seemed like a huge task and everyday I said I would start tomorrow. But tomorrow never came. I am on a weight loss program and have recently dropped 40 lbs….so a lot of my clothes are now swimming on me. Planning to lose more I decided today was the day to purge myself of those huge sizes that are not fitting anymore (a good thing).

Slowly I have been decluttering the downstairs rooms like the kitchen, dining room and living room. My biggest problem is hubby. He doesnt want to get rid of anything – so I am secretly ridding our home of “stuff”. But if I do a large amount, then he will know and actually go into the trash to retrieve it.

So here and there I dump things in the trash but not make it too heavy and get him suspicious. I had a drawer of keys (some from the owner before me)….really? Why was the being kept?

  1. So we are on the same wavelength. I always like to stop by if someone bothers to leave a comment. I used to throw out my husbands old shoes but not much else. I kept purging mine and slowly he got to the point he was ready to let things go. When I think of all the stuff we have given away till the thrift stores asked us to stop coming by for awhile, I was astounded. Very often he would by from the thrift store and I waited awhile and gave it back to them to sell again. Good luck with the hubby.

    • Thats so funny. The thrift store merry-go-round. lol My husband is a football nut. My daughter got divorced and was purging her exes stuff – one item being a football doll – hubby found it in her garbage and retrieve it. It is now sitting on my living room floor and I cant seem to secretly get rid of it…
