I graduated with my degree in chemical engineering in May of 2014 and I had a job waiting for me that I absolutely loved. I felt like something was missing from my life though. So I decided to give the internet dating thing a try. I tried multiple sites and met many guys but most of them were not worth my time. I met a guy on one of these sites and we talked for over a month before we decided to meet in person. I really liked him and thought maybe things will work out. Then I got pregnant and he bailed.
If you have kids then you know how expensive it is to raise a child and doing it on a single income completely by yourself is overwhelming. All of my family lived 4 hours away and daycare was going to cost as much as my rent! After my daughter was born I made the decision to quit my job and move back in with my parents.
I moved all of our belongings (which fit in a two bedroom apartment) into a storage building and my old bedroom at my childhood home. That’s a lot of stuff to begin with but as I sit here and look around this room, it’s obvious that a lot of it is junk. I don’t want to be weighed down by this junk anymore.
To show you an example of how bad it currently is, here is a picture of the current state of my closet.
I’m embarrassed that it looks that bad but I just wanted to give you an idea of how badly I need to declutter and organize. My entire room looks that bad and I will be starting on decluttering it later today.
I feel like this was a long post but I wanted you to be able to understand my why for doing this. Leave me a comment and let me know why you do what you do.
