Podcast episode #13: Let’s clear out our stuff

Welcome to episode #13 of the To Do Lists of the Semi-Adult podcast where Rae and I talk about how to be mindful of collecting stuff. How do we clear out clothes and books and things we don't need or use? With difficulty, is the answer. Subscribe to this bi-weekly podcast on iTunes, Stitcher or by using our feed link.  This week we talked about how much stuff we've managed to collect during our 27 years of life, and what to do with it.  Inspired by a Netflix documentary on Tiny Houses, Rae said she is going to try to be more mindful about buying things and throwing out things that have holes or are broken, like her super cute galoshes, and I talked about how I turn my hangers every Memorial Day to see what clothes I haven't worn. We also caught up on each other's lives, because it's been awhile! A.J. and I recently moved this bookshelf into our living room and organized the books my color! Our saturday project involved moving this bookshelf and organizing the books by color!

During the lightning round, I mentioned that I just finished reading Amy Poehler's Yes Please, after reading Tina Fey's Bossypants and Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me. I liked Poehler's book best. Rae is reading a cool trilogy about magic and criminals called Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. You can see more of her thoughts and sketches from the book here and here. Food-wise, she's favoring grilled cheese and tomato soup, and I recently made a chocolate-peanut butter pretzel layer cake from Joy the Baker's new cookbook, Homemade Decadence.
