I found my motivation to purge :(

Well, a pipe burst in our house and flooded our whole living space. We will be replacing a large portion if not all of the flooring, and I have STUFF everywhere.

WHY do we have this much stuff????

I know I will put back more than I need to...that's just how I am, but I am really going to be conscious of what goes back in. This has really shown what excess we have!

We have a cleaning crew in our house...and frankly, it's embarrassing!

The sad part is that I've been purging for a year!!!! Guess, we're still just bringing in too much!

not a fun way to purge but at least you can see all that you have and what do you really need

Yeah. Now only to just let go of what we don't. What we have the most excess of is things for the kids. I just hate for them not to have 1,000 of each kind of toy, you know?! I've got to just purge it. It would be better for them and for me!

Threw away 1 bag of things I was saving to donate. Also talked my dh into throwing away an air mattress with a hole in it. WHY did we have that?!

What a mess! Sorry you're having to deal with a broken pipe, and good luck with the clean up.
