not get rid of?
what are the things you absolutely, positively, cannot part with? my list is getting smaller and smaller. i feel like i am on round 4,700(ish). moving into this tiny space has been the most unexpected silver lining when it comes to stuff. it’s not the first time i’ve mentioned it i know, but since the last time i said so, i’ve purged and evaluated at least twice more so there obviously is more to say on the subject.. don’t you agree?
it is amazing the amount of things we accumulate. and the kitchen. oh my. so many things. we, me + him = two, had at least 75 glasses. juice glasses, bigger juice glasses, tall glasses, fancy glasses, mason jar glasses, glasses with handles, vintage glasses. i mean really. we entertain tons but usually not to the tune of 75 people every time and lets face it, when 75 people are coming we’re probably using plastic. hello. and i really like all of the glasses or we wouldn’t have them in the first place. but.. most of them were not dishwasher friendly and turns out we don’t love stuff that isn’t dishwasher friendly: i.e. hard to clean, reaching with stretched fingers into the bottom of the glass. off to someone else’s home they go.
and clothes, and shoes, and make-up, and books. slowly but surely, what i thought was a pretty small stash of stuff is truly becoming a tiny stash of well-curated, much loved items. have you done any purging lately? how do you feel having done it?
