Hello and Happy National Trivia day!!
Robert L. Birch, Grand PunScorpion of the Puns Corps created this day to raise our awareness of the significance of trivia in the development of human curiosity, science, and fun.
Trivia is defined as details, considerations, or pieces of information of little importance or value.
Another way to describe Trivia is something or things that are unimportant.
Are you holding on the your own personal trivia? How about pieces of stuff of little importance or value? Do you have stuff that was at one time important but now not so much? Is your trivia taking over areas of your house?
Do you have your corsage from prom but prom was over 20 years ago and your prom date is not a significant part of your life now? Don’t tell me you still have your prom dress? WHY. Are you going to wear it again? Is anyone? Let it go.
Do you have advertising key chains from places you don’t even use or maybe they are out of business? So why are you still advertising for them?
Another thing that people sometimes fail to get rid of is a restaurant menu. Are you one of them? Do you have menus from places that are out of business, not in your neighborhood, or that you don’t eat at? Maybe they stopped delivering or you have the menu from 10 years ago. News flash they might have changed their options or at least their prices.
What about magazines? Don’t keep them.
Has your junk drawer spilled out and you now have a junk cabinet or dresser or closet?
When you moved into your current residence did you actually have empty space in your closets or cabinet? What happened? Could it be that you have too much trivial stuff?
Are you holding on to stuff for your kids? Give them the opportunity to pick it up or let it go. They may not want it either. You can use the space for better things.
Are you a gadget person? Do must you have every new gadget? Did you have to have the tornado potato peeler or the Parrot Pot (yep it’s a real thing) how about a chia pet? If you are on the fence about whether to keep something or to let it go, put it in a box and if you have not had a need for it in 3 months let it go.
We will talk about closets and clothes in another in day.
What trivial stuff is creating your clutter? Does it help you create the life you want? How does the stuff make you feel? Does it make you happy or does it suck the life out of you?
