I felt like my TV was taking up an unnecessary amount of space and spotlight in my already tiny living room. I am completely against having one in my bedroom – so it had to go.
This is part of how I’ve been trying the whole 40 Bags in 40 Days thing and it’s going REALLY well. I sold my TV (bye, au revoir, adios!) – which is shocking to many people. But if you know me – you know I just don’t really watch television. I’d rather read, listen to music or hang out with friends face-to-face. Yes, there are few TV shows I actually watch religiously (GIRLS, Mad Men) and many series that I watch over and over and over (The Original Law & Order, Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl). Lots of “girls.” However, most of my TV watching is in bed while trying to fall asleep. I think I’m too OCD to really sit and watch tv and I am FAMOUSLY known among friends for falling asleep during movies.
I also used it as a “fireplace” during Friendsgiving last year – but candles will do next time.
Would you ever get rid of your television?
