Packing and Unpacking

This weeks marks eleven weeks into gypsy life. I can hardly believe it. Eleven weeks in, and this extended house-sit is coming to a close. But don't worry, I will not be completely homeless.  I am preparing to relocate once again.

My next assignments will not be more permanent, but rather shorter in length. And resulting in a need to make my life even more portable. Thus I am looking at the items I have chosen to haul around with me for the last few months with new eyes. With a more critical look at what I actually do and do not need with me.

The thing about living out of duffle bags is that you can't see all of the items in your wardrobe. Out of sigh = out of mind. The main realization is that I do not wear a good portion of the clothes I thought I'd want during this time. (Let's not even talk about the shoes.) So this week, I have a goal to reorganize and move from two duffle bags down to one. It's going to be a stretch. But with creative packing, I might be able to do it. I will let you know how it goes. 

I am also taking a leap and trying my level-best to reach another goal this week. It also involves unloading some baggage, but I'll tell you all about it if and when that goal is finally accomplished.

It's sort of a freeing feeling. 

Have you been doing any unpacking of sorts lately? Unloading of unneeded items? Was it overwhelming? Or were you motivated by the sense of freedom it provided?
