    Default 2nd Pre-Holiday Clean-Up Mini-Challenge

    Okay everyone...

    Today I want you to look around your home and try to find something that you can toss/donate/freecycle. It should be a larger object that is taking up some needed space, but it doesn't have to be furniture sized.

    Let us know what you get rid of and why you chose to let that object go and how you feel now that it is gone.

    I think we can take a week for this, as it will take some time to actually get the objects out of your homes.

    Always remember others may hate you, but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself."

    I'll go first. I cleaned out the basement the other day and cleared off and decided to freecycle a wire storage rack. It was two pieces; one side for shelving and then wire mesh baskets on the other side. It took quite a bit of space in the basement/laundry room and now that it isn't there anymore, ahhhh...the room feels more...peaceful to me. Makes a chore that I hate a little less hate-able because I like the environment more.

    I freecycled it and it was gone when I woke up this morning.

    Someone else?

    I'm getting rid of a child size desk that no one uses anymore. The twins took it out to the van already. I can't believe what a difference it makes. I think I have to get rid of some more stuff.

    Well, I got rid of a four foot cat tree yesterday!! Does that count? I'll have to look around, but don't know if I can meet this one. Most of the bigger items went away in the fall fling.

    ~Can I count the broken dryer and potting cart my dad picked up last night? I slid a curbside find shelving unit in the dryer's old spot and slid a laundry basket on each shelf for sorting. Looks so much better!~

    Check! I donated a gliding rocker and ottoman this morning . . . I sat and debated it before I put it out with a couple of bags of clothes . . . it's hard for me to part with items that have memories of my doodlebugs attached . . . and then I thought there is a new mom who doesn't have the money to splurge on a rocker this Christmas and hopefully my rocker will find it's way to her so she can enjoy the gift of rocking a feeding babe to sleep in the wee hours of a winter night.

    Just yesterday I packed up some huge toys of my girls. A foldout tent, two huge squares that have play things on all sides. I am sad that my youngest is getting two big for them, but she is not using them so out the door they go.

    Madhen- I think that totally counts
