I loaded up the trunk of my car today and headed to the woman’s shelter and local thrift store. There won’t be any time for spring cleaning this year, because I’ll be too busy in the garden.
So I packed the kids old suitcases from when they we teeny tiny little people with gently worn clothing, old backpacks and a few Christmas gifts I know we won’t use. I’d rather someone who can use them have the stuff rather than it sitting in a closet collecting dust for the next 5 years.
I also found a few extra blankets we were not using, and donated the smaller of our two Christmas trees as well.
As we were packing up the Christmas ornaments this year, The Girl made it known that we will be having a REAL Christmas tree next year. Not a fake one. She already has the tree farm picked out, and I wouldn’t put it past her to have her tree picked out too.
I don’t know about you, but getting rid of stuff feels good. Only 22 more bags/boxes to go. Yee-Haw!
