Binges and Purges - December 20, 2016

It's been a fairly slow week both for binges and for purges, which somewhat surprises me. I wanted to binge on some sailing gear and sailing books after the really stressful week I'd had. But I refrained.

And I wanted to spend time evaluating my things to see what else could be disposed of. But things were just too hectic to do so.

But I did order one unnecessary item and did get rid of four. And hopefully I'll be able to get back into the swing of things this holiday weekend as more stuff gets loaded into my small space.

The Binges

I've become just a little bit obsessed with this online pottery shop on Etsy. And when I saw this mug I just had to have it. While it isn't 100% needed, I know my guy will use it as it holds way more coffee than our standard-sized white mugs. And as he only had one oversize mug and I had two, I thought having this fourth mug would balance things out.

Of course I have to ship out the three really lovely mugs I bought for gifts and not end up adding them to my cupboard.

The Purges

Last summer I'd purchased a new set of flatware as my old set was losing its plating. But because the new set was only a set of six versus a set of 12 I was afraid of tossing all the old teaspoons as those have always been the most in demand. But our set of six has been more than adequate and I have not had any need of this "just in case" stash of four. And so I've finally taken them out of the bin and am purging them.
