It’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 is 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 😉
What I am saying is you’ll be finding more bags than purses in my home.
Well, that was, until today 😉
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?
1 Eddie Bauer laptop backpack
1 30 liter backpack
1 Crumpler laptop bag
2 gym sacks
1 Camelbak runners hip-pack
1 Eagle Creek waterproof hip-pack
2 suitcase straps
7 bags and 2 travel related items out-the-door
We’re at day 2 of my 21 day declutter challenge.
Over the years I’ve been a bit of a bag and backpack person. Purses not so much, but suitcases, backpacks and messenger bags.. yep that would be me.
Now.. you can only use one bag at the time, they say.. and they would be almost right (I often use two when I travel), so even thought I have downsized some, I still have a few left. And that’s OK.
BUT holding on to old worn out ones.. well that’s just no point now, is it?
