For week 4, I pulled a Joker. This is the highest card to pull and thankfully there are only 2 of them.
Oh did I have fun with this card. Last Saturday with it being so gloomy I turned my phone off, turned on Blue Bloods in the bedroom and spent 3 hours going through all of my clothes, linens, closet, dresser and bedding. Then I added in my son’s bedding and the clothes he wanted to donate. In all I collected 11 bags of clothes and linens to put in the collection box at the Methodist church. I also washed a couple of winter coats and have 2 quilts in the car ready to go to the dry cleaner. The beds were stripped, linens washed and put back on both beds.
Paperwork wise I went through a few things from my Rotary Club notebooks that I didn’t need anymore and recycled all of it.
Upstairs I packaged up and returned a set of dishes to someone that hadn’t gotten a bite on my Estsy site, which is too bad because they were pretty Wedgwood and another covered dish went back to another friend that didn’t sell.
Lastly I went through screenshots on my phone and deleted 263 photos. And that completed my Joker card for 500. Whew! That was a lot!
It was a fantastic day of going through and purging. I hope to duplicate that day again soon. I love how clean and organized our bedroom is now. Absolutely amazing feeling!
For week 5 I have pulled a Queen. Sheesh! What are the odds?
Thank you all so much for the encouraging words about this year long purge. Many of you have jumped aboard and started purging too. I love that! See you all next week -MM
