Destashing Part 2
So I'm back to trying to finish the job I started a couple of weeks ago. You know the one. Getting my filing cabinet back to a usable state. As you can see from the pictures, I have a long ways to go. Unfortuately I'm discovering just how much being disorganized has cost me. Not so much in a monetary sense (although there is that aspect), but in having so much stuff that I REALLY don't know what I have. I mean I found not 1, not 2 but 3 copies of the same pattern. Now it's out of print so I'm sure I can find a good home for the extra copies but I could have had 2 other patterns for the money and space these 2 cost me. And, honestly, how many patterns of polar bears can you have? They're my favorite wild animal but do I really need 12 charts of polar bears? So I'm really determined to get this mess straightened up so I can actually see what I already have and what I need (nothing really but we know need has nothing to do with it). I'm just so tired of being disorganized and wasting time and money on something that is supposed to be fun.
