This post is part of my 40 before 40 project.

22. Simplify – get rid of all the junk I have accumulated – have a place for everything and everything in its place.


This week, it was still pretty easy to find 7 things to get rid of. I’m dreading the day when it starts getting hard!

It’s a relief to find that it’s an easy task to manage. I usually hate clearing and organising, because I often find I get overwhelmed. Doing it this way, I know I have a limit, and that makes it easier.

This week, I’m getting rid of:

  • A Christmas-themed apron. I think I inherited this, but I have enough aprons, and I don’t really like it.
  • A dark green fleece jumper that I’ve never really liked, it’s always felt too tight.
  • An old worn-out hat. It’s pretty, but past its used-by-date, really.
  • A trench-jacket that I haven’t worn in years. I need to be a bit harsh towards my jacket collection. I mean, I get maybe 2-3 months to wear them, and I have tons!
  • Three cute softies! These little guys are giant microbes that I bought a few years back when I was teaching biotechnology. I still think they’re cute, but I’m ready to pass them on to a geek who will more fully appreciate them! These guys are the common cold, e-coli, and kissing disease, from left to right.
The jacket, microbe softies, and possibly the apron will be going up on ebay soon. The rest are going to the op shop. My local oppie are going to love me by the end of the year!
Each week I’ll share my 7 things with you, and if you see anything you’d like to take off my hands (one woman’s trash and all that) feel free to let me know! Anything on ebay you can obviously buy – but if you see something I’m throwing out or sending to the charity shop, all you need to do is cover the cost of postage and I’ll send it to you.
