Bad day...

Took 1 bag o' pinbacked buttons that didn't sell (1), one bag of leaves (1), and 1 load of rotwood (1) to the dump. Brought home 5 strainers, a funnel, and a book (-7). My total has already been adjusted, sigh.

The funnel and 2 of the strainers are immediately useful in the house, but the other 3 are not....

We flung another 50 things today. We've been super productive this weekend!! Getting ready for a garage sale and clearing out a room for someone to move in will do that, I guess :)

I have a plastic bin in the sunroom as a storage place for yard sale items that I find via daily living - this seems to be working quite well in helping clear the clutter.

Got rid of a ton of paper today.

Changed by challenges and siggy to reflect my total concentration on my health issues - doesn't mean that I'm not participating, just not keeping track so I can be clear about my focus.

Flea Market Success! (or more so, anyway!)

Today at the flea market I sold 4 paperbacks to one customer (4), gave him 2 magazines as a promo (2), sold 1 paperback to a second customer (1) who also bought the last two new knives I had (2).

Then I stopped at a colleague's store and sold him 7 Robert Jordan titles wholesale.

I bought nothing, so sixteen has been added to my total.

Good for you mauimagic. Sometimes we just spread ourselves so thin and think we need to do it all. Stay focused on your health first and foremost.

We traded things today...a new chair in...the old one out. A new table in, the old one upstairs to my studio (oh well, can't have everything work out even!). However I did manage to get rid of a stool, a space heater, about 20 art books, a rug hooking frame, a large bag of garbage. I'm calling it 30 items.

I've been forcing myself to use materials on hand for my beaded jewelry, to decrease my inventory a bit. (I have a LOT of beads!) So I guess I can count four items "flung," as I created two necklaces and two bracelets and took them all to my craft booth this morning. ;)
