Totally forgot them, and the rain last night ruined them. So I'm throwing them out... bwahahahaha! Really, I felt naughty. I thought "I should reuse them", but that's silly. The whole goal is to not need 32 boxes to store clutter, right?Well, that got me to thinking. What other "rules" have I been following, even though they slow down the Big Purge?I have to shred all receipts. (No. I just have to dump coffee grounds, eggshells and some of the neighbor-dog's poop in the bag, and no one's going to forage!) I have to keep at least one stained outfit for workclothes. One for each season, that is. If anything is "good", I have to sell it or get a tax-deduction receipt for it. I can't just donate it because that would be throwing away money. (Why is it that I hear my grandmother's voice saying that?) If a plate is cracked or a cup is chipped, I have to repair and use it. And keep it right on top for daily use, but not when company comes. Related to the previous rule: If I can repair it, I have to. Even if it's not something I want to wear, use, or look at ever again.Can you think of others?
