Mini Mission – Wednesday 2Aug2017

Declutter something you found useful in the past but now sits unused. Sometimes it can be a little difficult to make the decision to part with such items because of you appreciation for their service to you in the past but if you see no present or future use they are now just clutter.

  1. I took an unopened package of priority mail boxes to the post office. The clerk was happy to take them, as she says she gives out lots of that size.

    I used to sell on eBay and the PO (at least then) would ship packs of priority mail boxes to you. When I ran low, I requested another set. I still had one unopened when I quit selling. If I ever need one, I can pick singles up from the post office, but even when I do mail something it’s rarely that size.

    I am working hard to break my habit of keeping all shipping supplies, because I no longer ship enough to need more than a small handful of bubble wrap now and then. It’s hard because my parents kept them when I was growing up (they ran an antique business) and then I sold online for years. I am not selling anymore! It is time to stop the habit! I recently gave away 5 bags of bubble wrap and air pockets and packing peanuts as well. That was a lot of space, and felt good.

    • Good for you, Kayote! When you said that was a lot of space and it felt good, my mind went back to the freedom I felt when I freed up a lot of closet space by getting rid of Christmas stuff!!!!

  2. For me it’s about using those forgotten vases with flowers from the garden 😉
