any, all, or something else altogether

I recently got back some of my shoes and clothes that I haven't worn since I livd in Africa. Most of which I've had for a very long time.

Some of which moved to Africa with me.

In 1998.

The pragmatic sentimentalist in me has held onto things longer than I probably should have. Beyond them going out of style or wearing thin or not fitting anymore.

But, somewhat begrudgingly, I weeded through my things and pared down.

It's a good thing.

It is.

And for the things I've chosen to keep, I just run the "Does this make me look like a missionary" test first.

So far everything's passed the test.

Even my jean skirt.


I did toss my Tevas though.

It was time.

And a matter of public service.

You're welcome.

Feel free to answer any, all, or something else altogether: Are you sentimental? What's your favorite piece of clothing? Do you need to do some spring cleaning? (Even though it's summer...) What's the hardest things for you to get rid of? Why? Is there something you wish a loved one would finally part with? Is it time to clean out your fridge? o_O Have a question for ME?
