    Default Donation/Sale Box Assignment #1

    Okay ladies...remember those boxes you found for your homework? It's time to begin to fill them.

    I will start you out slow. I want you to walk around your house and find one item...just one...that no one in your house no longer uses and I want you to put it in the box. If you come across something that is in bad condition, toss it, but you still must locate one item for the box. It could be anything...an appliance you came across in the cabinet clean out (I'm putting an old steamer that I never use in my box), could be a book you no longer read, a knick-knack that is sitting on the shelf and you never even look at...literally, this could be anything. Small or big, just find something.

    Today it is one item, but we will be filling those boxes, trust me. I want you to begin to get into the habit of critically looking at what you own and being able to be honest with yourselves about whether or not your belongings are useful or pleasing to you, or whether you are just used to having them around.

    Ready? Set? Go. This assignment is due by the end of today.

    Done. Put some paperbacks into the box. I'd love to chuck them all, but they aren't all mine to toss.

    donating 5 bowls w/lids & 2 tv dinner type bowls w/lids. Now my cabinet looks so much nicer & I can reach the bowls easier

    You guys rock!!!

    I have three boxes, but then again, as a teacher I got a lot of stuff for Christmas that I'll be selling. Why don't they believe us when we tell them that they don't need to get us anything, but if they feel they must, homemade cookies or a donation in our name would be a great gift?

    Great job everyone!
