    Default I challenge you....

    to get rid of at leat 25 things this week.

    I know many of you are doing the 7 things a week challenge but lets up that number this week if you are or participate in this one of you aren't.

    This does not mean list on e-bay or box for a yardsale. It means out, gone, given somewhere else, never to lay your hands on again.

    Whose in???

    I'm going to shoot for 30

    Ooooo I like the challenge, but I don't like to toss in the landfill... is "freecycle" okay to use?

    If it goes this week. Usually I just take the things to Goodwill or our local women's shelter if they are smaller items instead of freecycle anyway.

    Okay then ... I'm in.
    So far, I went through my sewing closet.
    I found about 50 golf ball boxes I intended to cover and decorate. For what? I don't know.

    I put them in the recycle pile.

    I had a pile of shirts I 'meant' to put away. But realized that they two of the shirts really hadn't been used for the last two winters. Goodwill box.

    (I'll find more)

    22 more to go.



    I know this doesn't count... but I finally got into my photo studio box and decided to sell the darn stuff.
    Pics and posted.
