Now, back to our previously scheduled discussion on new year’s resolutions. No matter what your new year’s resolution is, one of the best things you can do is to focus on using the things you already have rather than buying new.
Think about it. It will reduce clutter. It will save you money. You’ll likely eat healthier. You’ll relax more as you won’t be running around as much. You may even get a bit of exercise as you did into the back of cabinets and closets and bring things up from the basement and down from the attic
Let’s face it. We all have stuff that we’ve bought or received as gifts but never used. Maybe it’s a sweater that was on sale. Or a bag of soup mix. Or some bubble bath. Or stationery. Or craft projects. You get the picture.
What if, in 2019, you make a conscious effort to use this stuff up as much as possible. If you decide that you really don’t like it and don’t want to use it, give it away, donate it, or recycle it. So, how do you do it?
Over the next few posts, we’ll give special attention to a few categories of things that you might have lying around.
