Went thru two huge kitchen cabinets with my roommate- she was able to release things like graters, strainers, Tupperware missing tops or bottoms, party supplies like disposable plates and cutlery. Two bags donated, two recycled.
Also tidied my closet, bookshelf, sewing and art supplies, and memento scraps. (It was all rather minimal to begin with, e.g. had been already reduced to ~30 books now is ~25).
I've really become aware that the problem is "new" (read: castoffs -of which I am offered many and regularly!) stuff , I must be more discerning. Also, sometimes I don't take the minute to put my things away, and fr there it continues. Insideous.
So, a few flight stubs out, a hospital pillow, some art supplies, a couple blouses and PJ bottoms, etc., a few books, etc. All donated except stubs which were recycled.
Closet is organized again, jewelry making stuff, currency collection, books, fabrics and art/sewing supplies, makeup & toiletries .
