21:03 – Bagorama!

2017-21-day-3It’s day three of this years first 21 day declutter challenge.

And today it’s time for bags and backpacks.

You know how some people loves and collects purses? Uhu.. that’s not quite my cup of tea.

What isΒ me, you’re asking?

I think I can clearly state, I’m a backpack kinda girl.

I’ve always been partial to backpacks, laptop bags, hip bags, travel bags and sport bags.

I’m not saying I don’t own any purses, because I do πŸ˜‰

What I am saying is you’ll be finding more bags than purses in my home.

Well, that was, until today πŸ˜‰

Today, I cut my “collection” almost in half.

I bet you are expecting to see this huge pile of bags on the floor, now, aren’t you?

Sorry.. have to disappoint you!

Since I have been downsizing my bag “collection” a bit the last few years (at least 22 out-the-door), this pile is relatively small.

Even so, I just about cut my current collection in half.

What I’m left with?
8 bags; backpacks, gym sack, duffel bag, laptop bag and shoulder bag.

Leaving the house?Β

    I’m with you, Anne ~ not many purses . . . but lots of bags, sacks, and packs.

    Here’s the kicker ~> I organized and weeded through our bags last night and this morning with NO IDEA that you were doing the same thing over there.

      Yeah, I get what you are saying. There are a few items I struggle getting rid off, even though I don’t use them, don’t display them, hardly even like them… but they have affectionate value (sort off) it might be the only thing I have from someone who was important to me, or it’s something that brings back fond memories or whatever reason… and those are the things I’m still holding on to.

      And then there is books 😳 Books I struggle with big time. And photographs.. that’s my nemesis… I’m not looking forward to starting on that particular pile πŸ˜• outside of that, I’m slowly getting better at letting things go, and the more I’m working on decluttering, the better I get πŸ˜‰

    I’m with you too! I love backpacks. I dread it when I have to look for a new purse. I use them until they’re completely worn out and there’s no reason to keep them once I’m done with them.

      I’ve always loved backpacks, and have worn a few of them to shreds… but lately after I got a couple of purses (gifts) and also no longer work… I find I don’t use them as much.

      The stuff that went bye bye this time was a mix of well worn and hardly used at all. The thing was, as I have a couple of never favourite backpacks, there was no reason to hold on to stuff I most likely would never you’re again. You know how it is when you get new favourites πŸ˜‰
