My 40 days ended today. I kind of burned out on the 40 bags thing halfway through. But I'm still proud of all I cleared out. And it's not like the junk in the rooms and closets I didn't get to is stuck there now. I know I'll get the "de-junking bug" again.
I haven't really missed shopping. It's been nice to just automatically toss all ads into the recycling bin. I think I appreciate the time it's saved even more than the money. That being said, I woke up this morning a little excited about the fact that I can now open the emails I get from my favorite store about their sales. I only get emails because the closest store location is over an hour away. But I was thinking about how I needed a few more pieces in my wardrobe and how I pretty much only want to get them from my favorite store.
Then I came downstairs and opened an email from a friend informing me that we are getting one here in our town next month!!!! At the mall that's close to me!!!!!
It was my Joyful Moment and I could have died happy. Pathetic? Maybe. But I'm still WAY excited!!
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that aren't the least bit pathetic!
