Can you name one item in your home that adds a veryÂ high monetary cost for convenience? I can, and am happy to share with you what that item is.
MY INJET PRINTER
Or more to the point – the cartridges in it. And it is about to be decluttered. That’s not to say that we are going to manage without a printer at all, although I like the sound of that, but we are going to switch to a laser printer. Although the cartridges in a laser printer are much the same rip-off price, they at least don’t waste the majority of their cartridges contents on jet cleaning. Granted the new printer will only print in shades of grey and black but that is all we really need. Of late when we want anything colour printed we go to the local print shop because it is so much cheaper.
There was more to this post but technical difficulties caused it to wipe the second draft. Still swearing in my head about that right now. I will add the rest that I wanted to say tomorrow. After I rewrite it to the best of my memory. However thank you all for the spirited comments regardless of my publishing issues. Perhaps this minimalist version make the point except to say ~ Question every item in your homes, not just the obvious ones, because you just may not realise what is truly just clutter in disguise.Â
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter or start a use it up challenge on gift wrapping items. Usually one needs to leave the home to acquire a gift so why not acquire a gift bag at the same time in future. There is really no need to keep a large assortment of these items in your home.
