Once you start it gets kind of addictive. This couldn't have come at a better time because I was switching my business model and there were some things I just needed to get rid of.
So, where did it all go? I had a lot of clothes, accessories and coats (people give things to me to repurpose). Those all went to charity. There was a pile of vintage items that I've started selling on Etsy. A very small pile of stuff went into the garbage. I have another small pile of things that I need to list to sell on Craigslist.
Most of the items came from my bedroom (which kind of freaked me out because I had no idea I had so much stuff tucked in that room), a couple of things from the dining room, a set of drawers in my second bedroom and the closet in the second bedroom.
I'm actually ready to do it again. I still have to clean out my second bedroom, my storage unit and my kitchen. This process really forces you to let things go, which is something I have a hard time doing.
I think the state of some of the rooms of my house reflects my state of mind, which a couple of months ago was complete chaos. I'm now finally mentally and emotionally able to look at things and clean up the mess.
