peanut, I stopped counting craft items coming in, because they are all components to items, rather than items in and of themselves (if that makes sense). So yarn, fabric, etc, doesn't get counted.
Today, I policed the pasture, threw out some old financial records, and tossed some seeds that I think are too old to be viable anymore. I'm giving myself 10 points.

I was good today. We didn't go to the community Labor Day sale in the next town. They have a white elephant (furniture, housewares, games, etc.), a book stall, and used clothing. Any and all of it have been the source of stuff that's in the house. I looked around the house last night and just couldn't face the idea of finding room for anything else, so I woke DH up in the middle of the night and said, "We're not going." And we didn't.
Sigh. It's one of my favorite places to get stuff cheap.

Thanks Judy. I am needy that way.LOL Seriously the support helps. We dumped a van load at S.A. today. I clean 3 of the shelves in the linen closet (large job as I stockpile hygiene items there). Winter wardrobe wash going so so because of fritzy dryer-ARRGGH. Intermittent heat-iffy coil.
I think I'm done for for the night. Need more sleep and I have to get our new schedule down. Then I will know how much time I have for flinging.

Six more items out the door. Three unopened bags of mini-marshmallows and three opened bags of choc chips. All purchased around this time LAST year for Christmas. The chocolate did not hold up well to the summer heat - looked terrible and had a chalky consistency. The marshmallows looked like one solid mass in each bag. Because I only use these items for Christmas baking, which I give away, I didn't want to use substandard stuff.

5th box is packed and ready to go. I don't have time to deliver it before I leave for work, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. There are 67 books in this box, including 15 from the house. I'll adjust my total after I deliver the box, probably tomorrow.

Went to the bookstore, delivered the box. Shelved books for nearly 4 hours! Ah well... Brought home most of a box of my books that will be recycled back to the shop and then counted as GONE!

Wow! Everyone is doing such a great job of flinging items. I am going to spend the weekend working on my pile(s). Keep up the great work and get those un-needed items out the door.
