    One bag of leaves and one load of rotwood taken to the dump. This time, I managed to get away from there with nothing new, so 2 more added to my total!

    Because of the books that sold, I'm cataloging a bunch o' books to go to the antique store tomorrow. I don't add them to my total unless they sell.

    Today is the day of our yard sale! All the things previously flung are finally getting up and leaving the house. Yay! Its very exciting. I've been pleasantly surprised at the turn out on a Friday. We haven't made a LOT of money, but we've got more money that we had before, and we're getting rid of stuff. Its a great feeling.

    Flung two BIG items today. I had an old wooden incubator/brooder and a big stand that it sat on, and I gave them both to a lady who does wildlife rescue. I felt good about them going to a good cause and even better about not having to skirt around them in my house anymore!!

    33 things gone today.
    Most are going to DD#1 and DD#2 tomorrow. Will visit DD#2 and DD#1 will be there also. 2 fans, and AC, a dresser, a night stand, clothes, some "new wash clothes" I made from old towels.
    Everything is already packed in the truck and ready to go.
    Will be gone for about 12 hours tomorrow. 2 1/2 hour trip.
    More gas then I want to use, but it's to see my girls.
    Hey! This fling put me over the top, but I'm not stopping all year!!

    I flung a box of photo albums and photo pages to someone for free. That was easily 30 items (the equivalent of 3 shopping bags). Plus I flung a piece of green carpet to someone else. Make it 31 items.

    I went through a box that DD#1 dropped off for us and flung most of it. I suspect that's a net gain though. And then there's the stuff we brought in the house to organize my new sewing room. I don't think I'm counting that...it's useful stuff.

    The garage sale was a great success. We made a whopping $280 - which is pretty good considering that we had very few big-dollar items. We loaded everything we could directly into the car to take to the donation drop-off at the goodwill. We've been a bit negligent, but we're hoping they'll be open tomorrow. I thought about counting those things again, since they're going to end up being donated...but perhaps I'll just throw on a low estimate. We're so glad to be getting them out of the house, finally!!!!
