With the holidays, everything has been completely off kilter…in a wonderful way. We’ve slowed way, way down, and just been together. It’s been awesome.
I did however, right before Christmas take another load of stuff we no longer need to our Salvation Army. Want to see?
Some of my Food Network magazines. I absolutely love them, but I almost never refer back to these and they were collecting dust. And, my library has them if I ever need a specific recipe from one of them. Also, there is this thing called the internet…… It wasn’t painful at all to let them go.
Magazines that I read in the last week or so.
Perfume samples that came in the mail. I knew that I would never use them, so I am sending them off to someone who will.
More books that I know I will never read again.
This past summer I found myself a beautiful little tree that holds my Christmas cards, so all of these can go to someone else’s house.
I cleared out another hidey hole and found four more lunch boxes and an insert. Liv also took one of her porcelain dolls off the stand to sit on her shelf and declared that she would never want to use it, so off it goes.
In the same hidey hole I found glue traps. I’ve never bought glue traps in my life. Which means that these have been in there since the previous owners had our house twelve years ago. Peppermint mocha anyone? No one here will drink it. Random things someone might find useful.
Another breadmaker that was an extra. I’m down to one! Yay!
Something that Liv used for a jewelry stand, with jewelry she no longer wanted or needed.
A crystal tray, a head massager, perfume and miscellaneous.
Bras, books, magazines, magazine holders and pajamas.
And last but not least, a giant candle holder. It had layers of dried beans in it when I bought it, but, it got knocked over and they spilled and mixed EVERYWHERE. I hope someone will enjoy it!
Well, that’s it for
this weekly edition last weeks things I NO longer need. I am behind as usual! Did you clear out any of your clutter last week? How did you do for the year? I’ll write it all up later this week. This is one of my goals that I didn’t fail at this year! Yeehaw!
