What did you discard today?
We have a thread about what you bought today ... and as we all know, if it's a one-way street, it becomes a problem So ... what did you discard today? (or recently ...)

This week I donated three bins of books and a box of magazines ...

I recently gave all my post-2005 Nylon magazines that found their way through my room to my 16 year-old cousin. she loved them obviously.

Also got rid of some basics and sportswear that I don't use and are taking too much space..
.. accidently threw my credit card in that bag too btw..

Recently I recycled my entire collection of newspapers (I used to save each paper I received), something I've been meaning to do for ages now. It hurt so bad, but now my house isn't overrun with paper. Still, I have to wonder - would those articles about politics, sports, and weather be worth something someday, had I saved them?

Only two pairs of shoes, and they were really old and tatty! Man it's hard to throw shoes away.

Hmmm I think itís pretty futile to hold onto to things just incase they become valuable (Iím not judging you Iíve had the same thoughts when recycling magazines!)
Or maybe I'm just a clean freak?

^ The thing is, yeah, everything will be worth something (but probably just a few dollars) if you hold onto it long enough. For me, the consequences of holding onto useless junk aren't worth the couple dollars I might get many decades from now

Since we have a charity that comes by our neighborhood about 3-4 times a year, I recently got rid of about 10 tops and pants I no longer need/like/can wear (too big). I do have about 3-4 pairs of jeans that I wore holes in the thighs that I need to figure out what to do with. I just donít want to toss them for some reason.

I also got rid of about 50 magazines and catalogs.

I went through and sorted my wardrobe, and put away my autumn/winter clothes & discared (gave to my mum...) a black pencil skirt, a grey pencil skirt & a black and grey ruffled neck top that I wasn't that interested in anymore...

I'm going through a big clear out phase at the moment.

I keep all of my monthly magazines and it was just getting too much, so I've been going through them all gradually and ripping out things that inspire me from them, when I'm done I'm going to put them all together into a scrap book.

Also I've been selling quite a few things on eBay, clothes and shoes. But last week I gave away three bin bags full of clothes, shoes and bags that I haven't worn for years, but was holding onto, to charity.

It definately feels good to let things go and the extra space always helps!
