As you begin to clear the remaining bits of crap still left in your old apt, keep in mind this phrase…”throw it away”
I think I said that a million times the last day I was in my apt. No room for that can of soup? Throw it away! How about this million dollar bill I found? If it won’t fit…throw it away!
It had come to a point where I didn’t care about anything. Things I normally would have put in a special place, got their special place in the bottom of a trash bag, or the goodwill bag.
I gave away so much stuff, there were 4 gigantic trash bags full of crap. I even had a box I had not even unpacked since my last move a year ago. Do you know what I did with that box? Moved it into a corner of my new room. Now did I really need what was in that box? well when I finally broke the seal on the year old tape, I found my kindergarten graduation cap, high-school cap, and college cap. Even though I had not looked or used those things, they are very important to me. So now i’m charged with the task of going through all the stuff I went to the trouble of moving, and probably throwing out half of it all. Do I really need that dried up nail polish? or how about those 3 pairs of broken sunglasses? an earring without a partner? A necklace I have never worn and only cost me a dollar?
I’m going to need a really big trashcan.
