The Many Faces of Toni

I have many personalities. Most of the time, they leave me alone and I go about my day. However, when I try to clean or declutter, they come out in full force.

Here's the scenario: I finally decide to declutter an area and find an item. What to do with it?

The Minimalist says: "We already have one, so out it goes!"
The Miser says: "What if the first item breaks? We are trying to save money, so we'd be wasting money if we had to replace it."
The Martha Stewart says: "We could do something really cute and creative with it!"
"The Charitable side says:  "Let's donate it to Goodwill!"

The Anxiety Side says: "What if we get rid of it and decide we needed it?"

The Organizer says: "We haven't used it and forgot we even had it."
The Procrastinator says: "Let's put this aside and think about it later."
The Chocoholic says: "Forget this whole project. I want chocolate."

Ah, so many sides - no wonder it takes me so long to decide what to do with something!
