I think it would be useful to list some of the stuff that’s leaving my house, how it’s leaving and why. I picked a week at a time but may change that to a month as there is less stuff to leave. Friday June 1oth, 2011 was Day 1.
The 2 garbage bags full of random baby clothes, bibs, breast pump etc… plus a diaper pail got picked up from the front of our door. They are going to help two young pregnant woman who were not expecting to be pregnant and have nothing. That makes me happy to help so I filled the bags up and made room in the garage. A bag of dvds and cds made it into my trunk and off to work for a co-worker who wanted them.
Sold my double breast pump to a woman in the FB group for $125. The money paid for most of the baptism costs that day!!! Good because we had no money saved for the baptism. Not only is the pump backpack gone but a grocery store bags worth of attachments is out of my house too! Also, one of our two corkscrews broke today and we threw it out. Why did we need two you ask? Actually until last year we had three. So now we are down to one which is all you really need.
My poor George Foreman grill which hasn’t been used in over 4 years, has been living in our garage and is totally garbage finally made it into a garbage bag today. It would be unsafe to use because the non-stick coating is scratched badly. I was so happy to own one and I can’t say it didn’t do it’s job but it was hard to clean and used up alot of precious space. When we buy things we should imagine where it will be in the future. Now it’s off to the landfill for poor George.
So that’s my week in review. Not overly productive but there’s always next week.
