Just because I wasn't here doesn't mean I wasn't keeping up with the challenge. Here is my week, in junk:
On Friday, I went through my closet and found at least seven shirts to get rid of.
O's closet felt my wrath on Saturday. I know, it's not seven. You've gotta trust me, we found LOTS more that we took out of his closet, I just happened to have a picture of these five items because I knew they were given to us by two different families, and I couldn't remember who gave what, so needed to send a picture so they could return to their correct home.
Sunday we cleaned out our spare bedroom. Trust me, there's more than seven different books and magazines in this stack. Am I the only one who does this? Why the hell would I keep these old magazines? My only defense is that I got pregnant about a quarter into my subscription and I quit reading it then because I couldn't do the exercises. I told myself I would look through them after I had the baby... because apparently before I became a mother, I was delusional. In the words of Sweet Brown, ain't nobody got time for that. I barely have time to brush my teeth before I pass out from exhaustion every night, much less read anything that doesn't have big, colorful pictures and rhyming words.
On Monday, I dug out a broken necklace, three mugs, lullaby cds (they worked for me, not for baby), an unused lamp, and a cross picture frame.
Tuesday was a little bit of a slacker day for me. I found an old fake plant that looks just a little too fake, an old throw pillow, and old gift bags. Don't tell me I'm the only one who recycles gift bags... It's a great way to save some money, but somehow I always end up collecting more than I'm able to use. Maybe that says something about the number of parties we get invited to, or the number of friends I have? I don't know.
On Wednesday I found more pieces from the depths of my closet. This time I ventured over to Tots' side, too. The shirts you see here are the ones he gave me permission to garage sale. I have yet to get my hands on anything I really want to see gone (he keeps a pretty tight inventory of his Cowboys gear).
Thursday: two hoodies and a fairly new sweater. I know, again, not quite seven. But these hoodies were a little hard to part with, so I think it's ok.
Today I'm posting a picture of our old dryer. This might be cheating; we've been planning to get rid of her for a while, we just haven't done it. We've got to clean out our basement, though, so she needs to find a new home ASAP.
Have you been participating in the challenge? How are you doing so far?
