Well, not really. I know right from wrong. But I’m hoping I can convince myself there’s some gray area here.
So. If you read my post yesterday, you know I’m doing a “Get Rid Of 1000 Things” challenge. And after just a couple of hours, I was able to get rid of 120 things. Not great, but a start. And since then I’ve been thinking about other things that could go.
BUT. Then I went shopping. I bought a little of this, and a little of that. Not a lot. Just some. And some of it is going into a scrapbook album (which is technically just one thing, and does adding stickers to it – eventually – count as more stuff?) So. Here’s the ethical dilemma. (You can see this coming!) Do I have to add those things to the things I subtracted yesterday, thus reducing the number of things I got rid of?
I’m thinking yes. Except maybe not the stickers? And the bottle of paint is just replacing an empty one that I didn’t count as getting rid of something, so that should be a wash, right?
And what about boxes? If you take something out of a box, but you keep the thing and get rid of the box, does that count, since the box takes up more room?
I think I’m looking for some enabling here! Heeheehee!
