The day after a holiday is always a little rough. But guess what?! I just found out that the day after Labor Day is actually yet another holiday! Apparently its “Another Look Unlimited Day”, which frankly I’d never heard of before until today, but yeah…apparently it’s really a thing…
What is it you ask? Okay, so maybe you didn’t actually ask, but I’m going to tell you anyway. Another Look Unlimited Day is the day you are supposed to go through your house and get rid of the excess things you’ve accumulated and donate them to someone who could use them – you can donate things to a family member, a friend, or your local Deseret Industries. It’s kind of like Spring cleaning only without the heavy duty cleaning part, and with the declutter your life part. And you get to do a little good by giving to someone else in need.
Go through your closet and pull out those clothes you haven’t worn in a while – well, except for those skinny jeans you are saving to fit into some day…getting rid of those would be like admitting defeat and heaven knows I am not about to do that. (Why do I think my daughter and daughter-in-law are about to fall in love with this holiday?)
Check your playroom for toys no one plays with anymore.
What do you have stored up in the attic or out in the garage that no one even remembers is out there?
Remember your excess “stuff” can be someone else’s treasure – so donate it!
So there you have it. Don’t you just love finding out about a holiday you probably didn’t even know existed? And doesn’t knowing there is a holiday the day after the holiday make you feel just a little bit better? Well, if that doesn’t, de-cluttering your life and donating the clutter to someone else is sure to!
Happy #Anotherlookunlimitedday everyone! And welcome to September 🙂
