Pack Rat

I’m a pack rat.  I have always known I was a pack rat, I like saving everything, even ticket stubs to concerts (but I had to throw a lot of those stuff out).  I have never really found it to be much of a problem, because I always had space to store most of the things I packed.  Now I realized I am running out of space!! 

I have been trying to clean out my closet for months now.  Everyday I tell my self “Okay Chirp, today you will clean out your closet and give away clothes you don’t need.” 
Then I open my closet and see the amount of clothes in there and I get discouraged. 

The thing is, I always say I need this “just in case” but that “just in case” day never comes.  But then again it probably will when I throw it out 😛  I also have attachment issues to some of my cloths, even though I KNOW i won’t wear it again, I just cant help keeping it.

There was a show that was on TLC in the states, where they would go into a persons house and take out all the things they don’t need and throw them out (even though the house owners are resisting) and it makes the place neater.  Yeah I need that.  I need someone to tell me ” YOU DONT NEED THAT. NO YOU REALLY DONT. STOP IT. LET GO!” and then out the window it goes.

I need it to be someone strong, that won’t say “okay okay fineeee, you can keep it, stop giving me that cute look”

    Count me in!

    The rule is “If you haven’t worn it in the past six months, then it goes away”
