Psst…… What’s In Your Drawers?

OK, let’s talk about your drawers.

Are you hoarding rubber bands, twist ties, shopping bags or you tell me?

Why? You don’t need 1,000 rubber bands, 50 twist ties from your bread wrappers or 25 paper bags.

Really, you don’t. You might need a dozen rubber bands and a few of the other things. Why do you think you might need them? If you can’t come up with a good reason let them go.

And No a Rainy day is not a good reason.

The better question is, how many have I used in the past 6 months? If you answer is none then you really don’t need them.

I’ll admit my Dad had an amazing rubber band ball but he had goal. When it reached a certain size he would retire. By the way he did.

 

Throw away, recycle or sell needs to be your mantra!

One of my favorite sayings is "If you knew you could not fail what would you do?" I enjoy helping other people. My friends know that I’m the queen of useless trivial knowledge and I will not hesitate to use it.

  1. Magazines are one of my downfalls! I have to consciously remind myself that it’s okay to get rid of them, even if I didn’t read them yet. There will always be more shiny bits of information to pour through: magazine, fliers, books, the Internet… There will always be more. I don’t need to read them all. If I miss something, it’s okay. 🙂

  2. I have such a hard time letting go of useless material goods. I love this post, and the idea that if you can’t find a good use for something, let it go. Letting go is an art form I haven’t mastered yet. Show me the way!

  3. Thank you for this! I have a million pieces of ribbon stuffed in a drawer that I keep telling myself I will use at some point! Time to let them go I think~ or finally make something with them!

  4. Holy moly! I’m rummaging through your posts and look what I discovered. Recently, I wrote one with almost the same name on “drawers.” I thought I was trying to be cute so you were cute too. Synchronicity. Happens all the time.
    And, I have a question. We can donate all day long. Lots of places for that. As I told you, I’m not one to dispose much in the landfill. Recycle, reuse and such is more my style. I cleared my closet, of lots of like new and even completely new clothes and tried to consign them but places around here want expensive brand names and items to be under two years old. I had about 125 pieces and ended up donating them to a wonderful organization. My question is, we have many collectibles and more clothes and other things to sell. We used to have an e-bay store years ago which was fine but now it’s different and more costly and difficult or so it seems. Do you have any places you recommend (not Craig’s list please) other ways to sell belongings. I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

    1. Hello Lisa, Do you have Facebook group sites? Search for Local Facebook buy, sell and trade groups. Also I recommend Etsy. You can sell there as well. Another thought is to get a booth in an antique mall or sell them to a dealer. Check for auction houses in your area they will add your stuff to their in-house auctions. You could do a pop up sale on your own. I hope that gives you some food for thought.
