Band-Aid: One Week Later

Last week, I suggested you fill a bag with stuff, and throw it out. Get rid of it quickly so that the pain of its removal will not be felt as harshly.

So, how'd you do? Did you get rid of anything? If so, how much? How hard was it for you to do?

To give you an idea of how much purging I've done over the last year, I originally had about four tall bookcases worth of books, double-packed and squeezed into every conceivable space in and on top of the cases.

I'm now down to less than two. Was it hard. Hell, yes! I hate getting rid of books, but I refuse to move them again when many I have were books I intended to read but lost interest in. So, a box full of paperbacks went to Goodwill. Many that were in sad shape I just tossed.

In the last week I got rid of a crapload of magazines. That was my Band-Aid moment. Lots of craft magazines, Japanese puzzle magazines, and cooking magazines. I figure if I haven't cracked the magazine in a while, it's safe to get rid of.

Comment and update the group on your Band-Aid moments.
