    Threw out some more margarine tubs (DH thinks we need to keep all of them), unidentifiable objects in the junk drawer.

    For garage sale box a couple of old coffee mugs, a 2 cup coffee maker.

    Will be working more on this tonight after work!

    I've got several extra pieces of my good china to list on e-bay. This cleaning/organizing may make me some money

    Dh cleaned the screened porch in an unusual burst of energy . We placed these things by the street:
    - computer desk - falling apart pressboard
    - kitchen chair - falling apart and waterstained
    - old screened door (dh replaced w/ new the other day)
    - misc. trash
    - very old speakers that were hanging from the walls (not ours)

    We also took 2 boxes & 1 bag of misc. stuff and clothes to Goodwill today. Things are starting to look pretty nice.

    I would love nothing better than to have a spring fling, but I got rid of everything I possible could "fling," when we moved!

    Some lids that had no cups, expired coupons, broken pencils, rusty nails and screws, papers, and little legos---kids were warned...... That is it for now.

    Downstairs....2 garbage bags full ...almost one full bag to be burned and the other was 'stuff" in kitchen cupboards that I never used. I will donate those as they are in great condition, I just don't need them.

    Okay - started the master bedroom and got rid of 4 comforters! Who needs four extra comforters? Also, why did I keep them?


    Also ready for garage sale is a box of dd's clothes she has outgrown and some books. :
