I recently had the little room where I teach renovated. And I discovered some little things I have already forgotten I have.

Some are:

  • art kits which include lacing materials as well as beads for bead work art (I wish these were Ocean Fossil Jasper beads though and not the plastic ones, lol)
  • storybooks I have forgotten about
  • school supplies like crayons, pencils, scissors and glue (it hardened already, argh)
  • toys that needed a lot of cleaning

Some children will be happy using these art kits for our arts and craft activities for the remaining summer days.

Decluttering takes us back down memory lane. I know because I did that with the home library and though it was hard to get rid of things I haven’t used, I had to do it mercilessly.

i declutter almost every week, but there are items that just keep on popping out — like those school supplies, like those dont want anymore plastic toys, like those i hate shirts — sa tingin ko my girls are having second thoughts kaya lulubog-lilitaw ang mga gamit na yan dahil they rummage in my charity boxes. hayss
