Stifled by Indecision

found: old sketchbook pages

Last month while I was looking through some boxes (ok, yes, I was looking for something I'd lost), I found an old sketchbook. I started it in 2003, but used it for several years, as I'm not a prolific artist.

Why am I stifled by indecision? My guess is fear and too much stuff. Just saying. I wish I had successful shedding of stuff to report, but alas, I do not! I am working on it slowly, but I get stuck often.

Where do you put the stuff you want to get rid of? When you have a toddler - don't put it on the floor, that's for sure. I don't have any extra rooms or closets (I mean, really, people - if I have a problem with stuff, do you think I have space to organize? nope).

I kind of wish I could have one of those organizer people from The Hoarders show on TLC. She could come over and just ask me what should be done with this item or that, and you know, put it in a pile somewhere that I haven't thought of yet. Or in her car.

Although I'd like to sell some things, rather than throw them out, I'm getting a lot closer to just wanting some of this junk out NOW. Which means it's going to end up sitting in the alley soon unless I feel like spending the time listing it on craigslist or ebay.

Today's Shed Tally:
  • 1 wool coat
  • 1 cotton jacket 
  • 1 down vest
  • listed four books for sale on Amazon
  • listed several books on paperbackswap
Last week: Organized the entry closet (although it could still use some purging)

So - some progress made! I just wish the progress were more... palpable?

  1. I do this ALL THE TIME. As in, want to sell stuff and then just load it into the car and bring it to Salvation Army. best strategy? No. But I totally get the...well, what do I do with it now feeling.

    Keep going!
