So much junk and after awhile you have to admit to yourself it's time to let it go. Trash it, recycle it or feel somewhat better by giving it away.
I was 15 years old when my boarding school burned to the ground. Sounds great....school burns no more school. Not in this case. We were back in class in an old chapel a week later. Seriously. The teacher stood at the alter! It was pathetic. No air conditioning and I swear this little town in south Saskatchewan had the hottest June ever.
My dear Aunt came to visit me during the one week I had off to buy clothes and more clothes! She gave me a card and after 20 years I still remember the words she had written to me: "....they can burn your bras but not the memories in your heart."
And that is why I am an expert purger!
