Cleaning House

The clutter that we’ve accumilated over the years is mind boggling. I throw away so much on a daily basis, but still manage to have too much stuff. Stuff to clean, to put away, to launder, to find a place for. Last night I watched a program where the “Queen of Clean” comes and takes out everything in your house, then lets you put back only what you absolutely need. This seems like a good idea to me, but I would never allow anyone from the outside to come into my little castle and tell me what I need or don’t need. Inspired by the TV program, I took one corner of a room and emptied a set of drawers. Then I put back only what I knew I would use, and threw the rest away. I somethimes save things that have sentimental value but what am I keeping them for? The memories, good and bad will always remain in my heart.
