Clear Out

I'm getting to that age when I want to just clear out all of my clothes and items because I feel they are cluttering up my house. I've been a bit of a hoarder since I was little so want to break that habit; I'm nothing like the extremists you see on TV, I don't… Continue reading Clear Out
