Long time readers of this blog are aware that I count my possessions each year in June. This year, my kids are moving into their own places. As they leave, they take their stuff with them. Even more exciting, is that they are taking a lot of our formerly shared stuff too. Furniture, kitchen items, décor have all been spoken for.
In this photo, from top left to bottom right: backpack, hat, suitcase, wallet (resting on the top of the organizer,) hanging organizer, socks, panties and bras (I’m not counting underwear separate this year, just including them in the 7 outfits–but if you would like to count them separately–there are 7 pair of socks, 7 panties and 4 bras,) 4 exercise outfits, 4 pair of shoes, ear warmer, gloves and swim suit, 9 hangers, black dress, 6 everyday outfits (I am wearing the 7th,) 2 coats (only one in the photo–the other is at the cleaners,) and the laundry basket. Counted in the clothing total, but not in the photo are a pair of earrings, a necklace and a hair clip. This gives a total of 35 clothing items. The laundry basket, suitcase, wallet and backpack I have included in the miscellaneous total.
And lastly furniture, which is a new category for this count, as previously all furniture except my bed was included in the items that I shared with the kids.
Other items you see in the photos belong to my kids. I am thrilled that when I move at the end of summer, I can get everything I own into the hatchback of my car.
