Today’s clearing is practical and sentimental. Clearing my nightstand drawer: Part 1. I found my camera charger! It’s been right there all along. I am calling this Part 1, because there are 2 drawers and I only cleared through the bottom drawer tonight.
- Thank You notes for Christmas gifts. I sifted through my drawer to find a handful of notes. The consumerism in me thought, “I’ve sent these before.. possibly to the same people…I could pick up a pack at the Dollar Tree or make some….” But no. I am unapologetically sending this mixed batch of notes from sets that I’ve most likely sent to these same recipients. In doing so, I am clearing space and sharing kindness. Win. Win.
- Sebastian’s Boutonnière. I’ve kept this one for years in this little paper box. He wore it to his first “date” dance in high school, winter formal. I do not need to hold on to everything tangible of the kids to have the experiences.
*Full Disclosure – This was a tough one because I want to go purchase new cards to send and not send the same cards. BUT, change can be uncomfortable and not be bad. Learning to use what I have and not purchase to simply purchase is the lesson. People love and appreciate snail mail SO MUCH that I can send the same card for 18 years and it will be well received.
