I’m totally planning to stick a random affiliate link into this post. Watch for it.
Mainly, that’s because I’ve eliminated almost every clutter spot in it.
The other day when I felt like decluttering something (but didn’t feel like tackling something big), I decided it was time to do what I’d been needing to do for a very long time.
Remember when I finally moved our never-hooked-up-to-the-new-TV-for-over-a-year VHS player out of the living room? Well, moving it to storage (only to be saved for wedding videos and such) puts a whole new perspective on VHS tapes and whether we should keep them.
So I grabbed a donate-able donate box and started purging the overflowing basket on the shelf.
Memories flooded back. Specifically, of my time in Thailand.
I watched this set of I Love Lucy’s Road Trip: California Here We Come! until I had them memorized.
(When you live alone and it’s the only thing to watch in English before the days of TV on the Internet, that’s what you do.)
I knew the moment when the camera cut away just before Lucy laughed. I could freeze the frame at exactly the right time so you could see the camera-man in the corner of the shot.
Those tapes were my friends.
But since I was willing to part with them, Hubby agreed to part with some of his favorites, too. (See how that works?)
And in the end, the space looks better simply because I decluttered.
How are your decluttering efforts going?
Did you catch the affiliate link? FYI, that set was originally $50 and now sells for less than $5. Hmmmm.--Nony
