I was on a mission to clean my room. I had a gigantic garbage bag ready to throw things away but my mind kept going, I need this. Luckily, I got past that and finally uncluttered my drawers and closets full of things from the past. The majority of the things I threw out fell into one of these categories:
These included things like crappy promo CDS (some that aren’t even opened), advertisements, cards, pamphlets and drop cards from past music festivals. I’m attracted to pretty designs and that’s how a majority of these things stayed so long in my drawers. They otherwise held no major value and were therefore discarded.
I had all the boxes and it’s contents (instruction manual) of every device I have ever owned. This included my first CD player, to my past 6 cellphones. Unless I think that old devices will make a profit, there’s no use keeping them. Into the trash can they went, except for the ones for my currently used devices of course.
For some reason I kept all the envelopes, cards and letters I ever received (like even Valentines cards from grade 2). As adorable as it is to go back and read these things, it’s something I can live without.
I keep some of the ones I sleep with but every other stuffed animal was an unnecessary reminder of an ex or people I never talked to anymore. Maybe I’ll feed them to Teddy.
Arts & Crafts
I love art and I have my own creations everywhere. I have a box of my own drawings, and models all over my room. Some of them seriously suck though, like this turtle bowl thing.
