De-cluttering

Donating makes me happy

These are some of the things that have left or are leaving our house this week. I sold the wicker basket through Facebook and gave away a bunch of bowls and Mickey Popcorn container. The rest is on it’s way to charity asap. The dinnerwareset has cups and saucers too that are being donated too. We bought new openstock Corelle plates and bowls that are more dishwasher friendly. The only packaging was the price stickers. My husband also picked up new glasses that are taller and will replace the glasses in the picture. The glasses came in a carboard box that we will recycle. All these items seemed like a good idea to own at one time but it turned out were un-necessary in our lives. I should have taken a before and after of our cupboard and you would maybe agree that buying slimmer plates and bowls works way better in there! I don’t like that we had to consume to achieve a more funtional kitchen but I didn’t see another way.

My next goal is to finish painting my garage. Half finished as of January/Febuaryish and it’s about time I get on it. I think that finishing the painting will motivate me to really get rid of more stuff that has no right to have space in our house. I’d like to mention the color is bubblegum blue and it’s a welcome replacement to the awful builders beige it is replacing. I will be posting before and afters of the garage.

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
