I finished the "100 Things Challenge" this morning! Here's the tally:
82-88 Quality costume jewelry (to be saved for the church rummage sale)
89 Orphan sock
90 Old prescription glasses to be donated to Lions Club
91 Key chain
92-100 Miscellaneous junky costume jewelry I never wear
Done! That was a very painless and quick way to declutter. I'm thinking I need to make this a regular quarterly ritual. While I don't entirely agree with the whole practice of feng shui, I do know that according to scientists, everything has energy. When I have too much *energy* (i.e, clutter) around, it makes me feel bad. Going through my possessions and eliminating those that aren't earning their keep is a great exercise in creating more tranquility in my life.
