Okay, that title may be a bit harsh.
But I did fail to research consignment and understand that I have already missed the window for fall/winter clothing. Which means, in addition to items I have posted on Craigslist and a box of books waiting to be taken to the used bookstore, I have this to stare at:
Before I started this large project I had dreams of grandeur. Grandeur meaning this would all take me only a week. Bahahaha!
Despite wanting a cleaned out storage room, I’ve decided to hold onto the consignment worthy clothing for another year. Gulp. Yes, a whole year with at least two rubbermaid boxes of items to consign next summer. It shouldn’t be too much of a burden if I get the rest of our storage closet/laundry area cleaned out this fall. And there should be a nice monetary return to look forward too.
So at the moment the great declutter has slowed down. Slowly selling some things on Craigslist, mostly baby items. Finding small corners to work through instead of whole rooms. Slowly learning to put my wallet away-or not even bring it at all, skip going into that store and stick to the essentials.
