    since I was away didn't purge much but left a couple of books I bought on the trip where I was for others. bought home a couple so a wash I guess. not much room in luggage so bought sleeping bags there left one plus air mattress at cousins to use or give away. one sleeping bag here will be giving away too. have a new pile of things started.

    purged a few things expired from the fridge that the boys didn't notice.

    Today I noticed a box in the storage area, opened and found it is a lot of REALLY old papers (hubby's). Task this week is to sneak papers from the box out to recycle or shred and hopefully empty box by end of week that I will also dispose of. I have donation pickup coming on Tuesday, need to gather more things. I gave away a few things to co-workers this week.

    I have permission to dump shred papers in the big secured boxes at work, they have a service. In winter I could burn in the fireplace but not really necessary.

    My friend brought me over some homemade chicken soup which is delicious. I gave her a new set of six pink globlets. She seemed to like them. Also gave her son some pokemon cards and two small stuffed animals for her two girls. Getting rid of stuff...slowly....

    Sorted about 1" stack of parents' papers to dump in the shred bin at work. Also about 1" of paper to go to recycle (envelopes and non-personal stuff.) Organized stuff in the laundry room a bit and vacuumed closet floors.

    I have a donation pick-up scheduled this week. Just a few miscellaneous and household items.

    I have a bunch of stuff on ebay ( kid books, Halloween mannequin, misc.) and I hope they sell.

    Dlrcpa- you reminded me that I have a lot of paper shredding to do as well.

    Peg- Anything donated/reverse borrowing is considered a win in my book!

    Finished working on the box of hubby's papers. Salvaged some spiral notebooks. A lot is going to recycle, a few papers I crammed into one of his other boxes. I brought home more things from mom's house, several boxes go be donated. Some silver/plate that I may or may not keep. Usually I polish first to see how nice it turns out. 1 piece looks marketable but replacements.com did not list it as something they are buying. May need to call them.
