My friend Liz told me that she has a pact with herself. She throws away 15 things a day. It could be 15 pieces of paper, 15 paper clips or 5 shirts and 10 paper towels. It doesn’t matter. 15 things go into the trash (or charity bin).
She said it’s not that hard to do, and less painful than a whole day of spring cleaning.
By the end of the week, she’s tossed 105 things.
By the end of the month, 450.
By the end of the year, 5400.
Maybe I can’t do 15, maybe I can only start with 10. But I am going to start to do that today.
