I told myself that I was going to take a bunch of stuff over to Goodwill and the women’s shelter months ago. I just kept putting it off and putting it off. Finally, this week I decided that enough was enough.
I planned to go through the house and find at least 100 things to donate. The number was scary, but it was actually really easy to get rid of 100 things. I managed to get well over 120! I’m very proud of myself.
Here’s the items that will be making their way out the door next week:
In that pile we have:
– A bunch of my clothes
– A bunch of Elliott’s clothes
– A bunch of Elliott’s toys
– Baby bibs/blankets
– Some DVDs
– Christmas lights & ornaments
….and lots of other stuff we no longer need!
It feels so good to get rid of stuff that was just taking up space in our home and it’s going to feel even better when we bring it to the donation centers and give to the needy – and that’s what this time of year is all about right? Giving to others (although I encourage everyone to do that all year round, not just during the holidays).
