Sending your stuff off to Purgatory...

I just did an organizing consultation with a wonderful woman here in the East Bay.  While the upstairs portion of her house, what I call the "public" spaces - the living room, dining room, kitchen, etc. - are neat, tidy and very attractively arranged, it's another story in the downstairs area of the house.  "Downstairs" is where things she no longer wants, but can't seem to bear to get rid of, go to suffer and await their eventual fate of final disposition.

Many of us have this place in our house or garage, the place where objects go to gather dust - we feel that because someone gave us that vase, or someone made us that pillow or something cost us X number of dollars or something belonged to another member of our family - we just can't send it on its way, it just has to sit and wait...

This client collected some of those things in her garage.  Somewhere there's a silver tea set that belonged to a relative that's been banished...

Finally, found the tea useful is this?

And finally...tossed into a donate box...hopefully someone can clean this up and still use it.

What things have you banished and why?  Couldn't someone else use those items before they are too dirty or rusty or outdated?

Look around you, choose ONE thing to send off to someone else...I know you can do it!
