Doing the De-Clutter Dance
Open bag of diapers - Facebook free page
4 used tires - Facebook free page
Christmas tree (salvaged from bad tenants) - going to my mother's house
2 dog crates - donated to rescue
2 dog outfits - donated to rescue
rusted gallon of paint - drying out so I can throw it away
It doesn't seem like much but I am working on it little by little. I haven't found a home for my microwave with the non-working display but I just listed it on Freecycle so I think it will find a home soon. I might just put my bike in my driveway with a "free" sign. I haven't decided yet. It is in bad shape and I don't think the thrift store would want it. I wonder what happens to things that are too shoddy for the thrift store. I have heard that un-sold clothes go to orphanages in Mexico but I don't know if that is true. Next week is our over-sized trash pick-up day so that would be a good day to put things out because people drive around looking for things they can use. A lot of things make there way down to Mexico. I often see pick-up trucks towing pick-up trucks piled high with treasures going South.
Anyway, I am looking forward to finding good homes for my stuff and having more room around here. I have to take a short break this weekend while family is visiting but then I can go back to my "give away, sell, throw away" game. I hope I can keep up this momentum.
