Inbound vs Outbound #23 – July 2022

The point of this article is to see what I’ve purchased versus what I’ve decluttered in the month. The ultimate goal is to see, if over time, I’m bringing more into my life than taking out. Also, if the things I do bring in are adding more value into my life in the long run since I’m documenting when it’s arriving.

  • Eight socks (textile recycling)
  • One basil (toss, too much effort)
  • One LED bunny (Buy Nothing Group)
  • Cat tree thing (tossed, since it was damaged)

July was a good, but busy month. A few of the things that came in were gifts, which is lovely.

If you read my June Update, you may notice that I already purchased a duvet cover. And it suckssss. I have regrets about it, but unfortunately I got it on Final Sale. So that one will become the guest duvet cover and hopefully the new one will do the job. Other than that, a pretty chill month.
