I Love Trash!



{I've had two Skinnygirl Margaritas tonight so I hope this makes sense}

I love trash. Seriously, I contribute to overflowing landfills far too frequently. If it's not attached to the wall by 60 screws it is not safe around me. One could never accuse me of being a hoarder.

I think my disdain for clutter originally started with my mother. I think my mother got it from her mother.

Basically, my father's mother (my grandma) liked stuff. If you visited to her house on January 1st, you could find the same pen, pad of paper, magazine, coupons, plant, etc on her table come April 1st. It drove my mother crazy. My mother inadvertently taught me that it should drive me crazy.

It did drive me crazy.

I just don't like clutter and/or stuff and I am not against throwing things away. If I haven't used it for a month or two, it's OUTTA here. I tried to throw the waffle maker away today but my husband told me that I couldn't do it.

I'm currently making to do lists.

Now that football is almost over we have an entire DAY available to throw more things away. Today we managed to clean out every cabinet in the kitchen (only 70% of our things were spared) and our basement tool closet (only 50% was spared).

Seriously, I feel so much lighter. Try it. Throw shit away. It feels great.

I love throwing stuff away! Makes me feel better!

My husband has learned not to look for something for more than about 5 minutes. He usually just asks, "did you throw away {insert precious memento here}?" The answer is probably "yes." I love to throw away. It's a little sad that almost nothing has sentimental feeling, but who has time for feelings when I'm too busy chucking things out the window?
Good for you! I might blow off all of my other responsibilities tomorrow to clean out some drawers.

I dont "throw" away stuff i donate it :) i dont like throwing things away someone else could get use out of or couldnt otherwise afford to buy i am big on reusing and recycling :) but i do like to go threw and do this every few months specially my sons room and our closets! As for pantry well if its still in date and upopened off to the food pantry it goes! I clean out the fridge every other week and i would say most of what can be gets composted! What cant be recycled in the recycling bins then goes to the trash can prior to moving back to australia our household of 3 adults and 1 7year old we only put 1 large trash bin to the side of the road a wk for pick up. Big fan of reusing and recycling! :)

I didn't mind "things" growing up, as we had plenty of place for storage. Now that I'm in a 2x2 apartment, nothing is sacred. If it doesn't have a place, its place is in the trash. Or, goodwill. But usually the trash because I'm too lazy to remember to actually drive it to goodwill.

We'll never have to nominate eachother for the Hoarding show! :)

I am craving to throw things away. However, I also craving to buy lots of new things.... Hmmmm...I think i shall do both!

Throwing stuff away is awesome!! I've been going through my father in laws house and trashing all the clutter... He ASKED me to, FYI! :)

A girl after my own heart... I love throwing stuff away even if I'm being wasteful. I give away clothes, but everything else goes in the trash. It's so cathartic.

I need you to come be my coach. No, you can just come over & toss $hizz. D will help you & he'll love you fo rit.

I SUCK at it. In my mind it's being wasteful and I can't take it. D yells at me all the time because I recycle just about everything I can. 1/2 the container of yogurt went bad? I toss the bad yogurt then rinse out the container to recyle it. I can't just toss it -- I know it's bad. I have to stop it.
