I'm usually nice about getting my home work completed a week in advance, but this week's sociology chapter isn't I've been able to get in to enthusiastically. Fortunately, I attempt to be a productive procrastinator, so I organized my room again.
I finally made the decision to donate elderly dresses, no matter how sentimental they are. My Prom Dresses, some homecoming dresses, & the dress I wore for my high school graduation are now in of the three sizable boxes I have set aside to donate. While these dresses are pretty & still in great condition, they hang off of me & I've maintained a size 0/2 for some time, so I don't think there's any point in keeping a closet filled with size tens. I even went through my dresser again & got rid of all of my elderly funky-looking socks & tried on lots of different things so I could get rid of what I don't need.
I have made another sizable step in my decluttering journey; I decided to get rid of all of my elderly Evening Dresses from when I performed in the local shadowcasting of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I had invested hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on my costumes, so I listed the more distinctive ones on e-bay, & set the generic ones aside to donate. I'm very happy to document that I have gotten a couple hundred dollars of my investments back in the first night that I listed them online, & I have even more to list next month.
The last thing that I'd been reluctant to let go of are elderly textbooks. For some reason, I was one time keeping all of my textbooks "just in case"I needed to refer back to them someday. However, I'm now on my 4th semester & haven't looked back at my elderly textbooks since I was one time in the classes for them, & they were taking up half of a shelf on my bookshelf. All of my elderly textbooks are now listed on half.com & on amazon, & I've already sold.
Despite that fact that I got rid of bags & bags of clutter & junk back in December & January, it feels nice to have another giant pile of things that will be going to individuals who will need them more, & love them over I have been. I hope all of my elderly Wedding Dresses , shoes, & accessories find great new homes.
