#1wordwednesday / name one thing you have held onto for too long

It’s #1wordwednesday and for 2016 I’m switching things up here on the blog.

Remember last week, I shared that my 1 word for 2016 is LESS.

I’ll go first!

Ummm…..UNDERWEAR!

WhyYYYYY oh Whyyyyyyyy???>?>>

The lesson I learned from my underwear this week:

Many years ago I found this amazing looking pair of underwear. They were seamless, stretchy (but not granny), pretty colors and the softest material. And they were on sale (STORY OF MY LIFE). I grabbed 1 of each color – 3 pair to be exact. I couldn’t wait to wear my new comfy cute undies to work the next day. It was a hot summer day. And I was wearing a skirt to the office. And my new underwear. After walking in from the parking lot and on to the cafeteria to grab my large cup of tea for the day, I realized upon getting to my desk that there may just be a slight problem. The new underwear seemed to be getting stretchier by the minute. A LOT stretchier. I went on to my first meeting. And as I came back to my desk, I sat down quickly. I almost didn’t make it. My underwear were about to fall right off and be around my ankles. This was not a good situation. Not good at all. I did what anyone with falling underwear would do. I went to the bathroom with my purse and took care of the situation. And then I took an early lunch break and headed to Target for an emergency run to get new underwear.

Why did I tell you this story??

Because some 8 years later, those comfy cute HORRIBLE underwear were still in my drawer!!!!!! NOT KIDDING!

It was time. Throw. Them. Out. Starr.

This got me to wondering, “What else have I been holding onto for no good earthly reason that is taking up dear precious space in my house??” #lessin2016

Your turn! Let’s hear your 1 word answer to this week’s question! I’ll use some of your answers and share ideas for LESS over the coming week. Just 1 word – that’s all you need to leave!

  1. Bathing suits! I have about 10, maybe more…… And I wear 2. Some I haven’t worn EVER! Thank you for sharing this story, I needed a giggle tonight.

    1. Hahah you know I aim to make you smile and giggle πŸ™‚ and to think I was planning to send a bunch of my “too small” bathing suits to you!!!! Hahahhaahha

  2. Shoes- many of which I know I’ll never wear again, some are so uncomfortable I can’t stand them, some are to big or to small, and some have no match (for some reason I always think the match will show up).

    1. I am laughing at how you keep shoes without matches!! I have some of these for my kids!! And I too have some that are soooo uncomfortable! Why oh why do we do this to ourselves???

    1. Oh my goodness. Yep. Me too. I could run a craft department right out of my bonus room! Maybe we need to host an unfinished project day and have friends to help us finish them all!! πŸ™‚
