It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with Lisa-Jo of Tales from a Gypsy Mama. The rules are to set the clock for five minutes and write. No worrying about getting it perfect; just write. Our prompt for today is ...ENOUGH.
Enough! How much stuff does a person need? I'm so tired of unpacking boxes as we've been moving for months now. Yes, it's challenging given that we started out with a house that was almost 4,000 square feet plus a vacation home that was 2,500 square feet. And we're trying to fit it all into a 870 square foot condo with no garage for storage. Yikes!!
What's in the boxes? I don't even remember half of what is in them. I have clothes that I haven't worn in years. I have boxes of Christmas decorations. Boxes of cards. Boxes of ribbons. Enough!
What do I do with boxes of receipts from business expenses? And photo albums, oh my. The older albums take up so much room. I hope to scan in my photos and create new albums that take up much less room over time. But how many photos can I save? I almost feel like a person on the TV show 'Hoarders" as I find it hard to part with many mementos. But enough ...
I will no longer keep every Christmas card or birthday card I receive. There's just no room for it.
I will upload all of my photos online.
I will go through my closet and donate clothes I no longer fit into or haven't worn in the last year.
However, I will keep my Worth Collection clothes that I cannot part with. I paid too much money for them years ago and they are classic. I will lose at least ten pounds so I can fit into these clothes once again. Enough ...
Blessings and love,
