    DH brought home an untouched fruit tray and a giant party sized bag of chips from the summer office party. Today I got 2 jars of herbs free with a coupon.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    An office chair with no back. It's made that way. It was in a free pile at a rummage sale. It was great timing because I bought a new desk for one of my sewing machines at another sale. The old desk and its matching chair will be donated, so I wouldn't have had a chair for the new one.

    Two Butterfinger bars from the grocery store.

    Three sewing machine bobbins from my mom.

    Today is not going as planned, but I'm not complaining.

    As we jumped in the van to deliver the old desk to GW, one of those weird random thoughts ran through my mind: We live in bear country. Therefore, we have to bring our bird feeders in at night. This is a permanent problem. We need to quit treating it like a temporary inconvenience. Therefore, instead the haphazard mess we have now of bird feeders and seed storage that has to live in the family room, we need something more permanent. I came up with an idea I thought might work, but decided to keep an open mind and see what presented itself.

    We had also planned on going to a couple of garage sales, so we did, after getting rid of the desk. At the first sale,there was a very old trunk in fairly rough shape. But of course I could see the potential, but sine those old trunks, even if they're completely wrecked, usually go for a lot of money. As I walked up, I could see a tag on the top and the number 5, so I assumed they were asking at leadt $50. Not a bad price but I wasn't interested. But then I saw the price was only $5. I still wasn't sure it was what I needed, but while I was looking it over, the seller told me if I wanted it, to just take it. I still wasn't convinced, so we went to the next sale because I had seen something there yesterday I thought would work. But it was gone, and during the drive to the second sale, I had pretty much decided I wanted the old trunk anyway. I really like old trunks, and the size is perfect for the space where it has to go. We raced back across town, hoping all the way it would still be there. It was, so now it will be living with us. I don't plan to do a full rehab on it now, just get it usable, and paint the inside to knock down some of the smell after I set it in the sun a few days.

    I still can't believe I got it free. I would have been happy to pay $5 for it, but who am I to argue when someone offers me something for free 6 or 8 times before I say or word to her? She sais she just didn't want to haul to the dump later today, and the condition my sad little trunk is in, it could have happened. Can't wait to see how this project goes.

    I took a couple shots of the free trunk. Sorry it's upside down. I've tried all kinds of ways to make pics come out right but can't figure it out.

    It's actually in much better shape than I first thought.
