Lost in transit

After a bout of decluttering a few days ago, I decided to get rid of a dress I'd loved but hadn't worn for some time.  It was an incredible charity shop bargain and an absolutely beautiful day-dress.  It had lived a life in the 'maybe' pile for quite some time before I decided the time had come to part with it.  I even sold it on eBay for more than I paid for it.  Everything was going very well.

Decluttering who you thought you'd be

Sometimes we hang onto things because it's too difficult to give up on the dream we had attached to them: the jeans we wanted to fit into one day, the activewear set for when we start going to the gym, the tableware for when we start hosting dinner parties...  They hold a different kind of sentimental value.  Our reluctance to get rid of them stems from our fear of failure or giving up.  But the jeans don't fit, you don't have an opportunity to wear the activewear and you don't have time to even consider planning a dinner party.
