Actually, this is what's left after my getting rid of 100 things this month. If you look carefully, you should be able to ascertain what my 100 things were - you got it - all Disney-related.
I started giving away things back in April. I knew it would be a little harder, so I started early. I sent some stuff to some princesses in South Florida, some stuff to some princesses here in Nashville, and some stuff to some princesses in Baltimore. I gave some stuff to some Goodwill princesses, and the rest will be sold to unknown princesses tomorrow in our yard sale.
One might wonder how I could even have 100 Disney things, much less find that many to give away. It's really quite easy - I am a sucker for anything that Disney World has for sale, especially if it's a good deal (and for me, what isn't?).
But having to give away stuff has helped me look at my shopping habits. I am a shopper who likes to buy stuff "just in case." In my case, I had a basket full of doo-dads that I was saving to give away. But I never really gave it away - I just kept holding on to it.
Maybe I've learned something. Maybe I've learned not to buy unless I intend to use it or immediately give it away. Maybe I've learned that a good deal isn't so good if it's just going to sit in my closet for years on end. Maybe I've learned that just because I like it and think it's cute, I don't have to have it. Maybe.
I can tell you this for sure. The more I get used to getting rid of stuff, the more I am enjoying it. Maybe I can live on less. Just don't tell the folks at Disney - I don't want to imagine what kinds of deals they might come up with!
