In case you are wondering what I am talking about perhaps you should first read Day 227 – Have you ever watched paint dry…
Now that we are on the same page you will know what I mean by “the paint finally dried” yes it really happened my son finally went through his clothes and we have eliminated several items.
I wheeled the portable clothes hanger into his room last night asked him nicely to make his choices. I could hear a lot of groaning as I left him to it for about an hour. He is nineteen so these things don’t just happen instantly it’s prudent to make a hasty retreat and hope for the best.
I don’t think anything went back into his closet. Two “treasured” shirts went into his collection in his storage container in the garage. The rest will be going to charity. I know it is just one small step forward in my decluttering efforts but I think I deserve extra points for the degree of difficulty.
ITEM 231 OF 365 LESS THINGS
Here is one of the items that The Boy (as we affectionately call him)Â was happy to part with. I chose this item for today’s post because it fits in so nicely with the Clutter Years Tally for the week. He last used this Karate Gi when he was 7 1/2Â he is now 19 so that is another 11.5 years making a total so far of 54.5 years and we are only 3 days in.
