I’ve often heard of retail therapy. Got a tiff with your spouse? Go for retail therapy. Bored with daily routine? Go for retail therapy. Stressed out? Go for retail therapy. (Retail therapy = shopping=Yahoo! Yippee!)
But then retail therapy is expensive. It’ll burn a hole in your pocket. The angrier or the more upset or stressed up you are, the bigger hole it will burn. Besides for a SAHM like me, I can’t afford retail therapy so I do packing therapy instead? Whats that?
Packing therapy is packing and throwing. First you have to find the time to do it becauseÂ once you get going and you build up the momentum, its hard to stop. Pack anything you like. Clear up old cupboards and drawers. Pack and give away old books, CDs, clothes, toys. Throw away old underwear (don’t give away those for goodness sakes). Remember when people were asked to donate for the Tsunami victims, they found lots of old underwear among the items, not just old but torn ones, with holes in them! Tsk! Tsk!
Yes, packing therapy is certainly much cheaper. Besides, once you’re done packing, you can sit back, relax, feel much happier about saying goodbye to clutter (for a time), and…….. pave the way for some real retail therapy. Hehe. So anyone want to join me in a cleaning and packing spree?
