Day 12: These curtain rod finials

What I purged

Sometimes things just aren't necessary, as was the case with this stuff.

Last summer I got a new bed that was missing the finials on the tops of the metal posts, so I got these finials from IKEA to cover the empty holes.  But they didn't really fit well, so after a couple months I did away with them -- I just hadn't gotten rid of them yet.  It's time for them to go, though.

I also have a bathroom cup and a few little wire baskets I don't actually like, a couple plastic food storage containers (I no longer use plastic but my mom gave me these anyway), and a water bottle that the dishwasher damaged.  (The water bottle is fine, but the laminate coloring is all peeling, and I don't have the patience or the time to peel it all off.)

What I'll do with them

I actually took these over to Goodwill and dropped them all off when I was getting ready to move.

Final Notes

I'm realizing that there are a lot of things I bought last summer that I don't really need.  Since it was less than a year ago that I bought these things, it's apparent to me how wasteful I had been.  I need to keep this in mind when I'm shopping.  Will I still want whatever I'm buying in a year?  I also need to be extra cautious when I'm shopping with others, as I think I am more likely to buy things when I am, especially if they tell me how much they like it.
