I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow over the course of seven years, we collected, upwards of 23 paint cans, 18 spray paint cans and 22 assorted items of cleaning/toxic chemicals. As this was my last Saturday in Sioux Falls that I had free, I realized that this was the perfect time to get rid of them.
To be honest, I thought that I could get rid of the paint cans and feel an instant sort of relief. I was wrong. They had been sitting in my garage, cluttering up my laundry room and generally been in the way for so many years that I guess I had just gotten used to them. When it came time to get rid of them, it just seemed like nothing special.
However, I would contend that anytime you clear clutter from your life, rather it be physical, emotional, spiritual, material or emotional, that it’s a pretty big deal. Those events should be celebrated! Do you celebrate when you clear clutter?
