Ok, here are the first round of pictures:
I think these books that I'm tossing have a hint of irony in their titles, don't you? The very books that preach the principle of lessness become victims of my purge. I'm still keeping my Don Aslett Clutter's Last Stand though. That book is golden.
Now I'm going to start on the clothes and toys and that should equal at least 2 more garbage bags, if not more.
Oh, and if you live close by and want to come rummage through this stuff before I donate it you have until noon tomorrow to do so. I have playtex baby bottles, cookbooks, megablocks, brio trains, lincoln log accessories, etc, etc, etc. Think of it as a free yard sale. =)
Today I want my cup to be half empty. I want everything to be half empty, like my closet, my shelves, my corners, the toy box, the laundry room, my dinner plate, etc...
Pictures are coming soon but this is taking longer than I thought. I've also had to stop my dejunking tirade to help a neighbor of mine. Because of unemployment, and a teetering pile of other family issues, this family of 7 has to be out of their house by 9am this morning. All last night we were taking van loads of boxes and stuff to friends' houses and to a storage unit. If anything was going to help refuel my desire to get rid of stuff this certainly did. Mind you, the mother held 2 yard sales and has has a continual pile of FREE stuff outside her house for the past 2 weeks. Yet I could not believe the amount of things being shipped and moved around. But as I judgementally sniffed at the items they were keeping I suddenly imagined some poor sucker having to move my junk and seeing what I thought was so important I had to burden their back with it and it made me just that much more anxious to toss more stuff.
So, hopefully I will have some pictures on here in the next few hours. However, if any of you have decided to dejunk with me and you are more on the ball than I am and have a post to share, please do. I haven't been able to figure out that elusive Mr Linky thing-a-ma-jig, but just leave a comment and I will add your post link to this post. Thanks!
