One focus in decluttering this week has been the contents of various bags, purses, and wallets I have lying around the house. There isn’t much to show from these because often what I get rid of is really just trash. Which is fantastic, but I draw the line at taking a picture of crumpled paper and linty mints.
Anyway, in the course of clearing out these bags and wallets I’ve compiled over $200 in gifts cards. This is both a lovely little blessing and also…kind of an annoying reflection on myself. I am really terrible at keeping track of stuff like this. Some of these gift cards are YEARS old. I’ve consolidated everything into one wallet and I’m hoping that by doing so I will remember to actually put these cards to use BEFORE I get out my own hard earned cash. I want to handle this a little better than just splurging on things I want, but I also don’t see much point in hanging onto them, either.
