Pictured is a lovely hutch I purchased at a sweet little consignment store in 2011. At that time we lived in an apartment with a tiny kitchen and we needed something to sit in the dining room to house a few appliances. When we moved into our current home in 2012 the hutch became the place where we stored tissue boxes. Many boxes of tissues purchased in big boxes from Costco. At a savings of at least $3 a year!
I think that sounds pretty silly too actually. We don't live in a huge house, and there are four of us, plus our kitty. Do we really need a piece of furniture to store things that can be purchased every few weeks through a quick trip to the store? We live within walking distance of multiple stores selling tissues. Even if space were not an issue, does it still make sense to have an entire structure just because its pretty?
I think we all live like this sometimes. You might not have a hutch in your life, but perhaps you are storing way more of some things than you need or want. Instead of making your life easier, it takes up room in your living space. It becomes more of a nuisance. Wouldn't a little extra breathing room be nice? Take a journey to purge land with me and lets see what we discover :)
PS. We sold the hutch a few weeks ago to a couple who was very excited. Now our boys have a place in the dining room to play with their little trains and train tracks.
Write me and tell me what piece of furniture you'd like to stop dusting, and start purging. I'd love to hear from you! firstname.lastname@example.org
