Getting Rid #5

It's early, I know - but again, getting rid is getting rid.

This week, thankfully, there wasn't trash to rid myself up - but something that gets to be recycled! These tubs were filled with "stuff," and I was able to move around, file, downsize, etc. So, my Sunday School class at church gets to benefit.
My assistants and I have plans for the top two already. The largest bottom tub will be placed in the storage closet for whatever needs to go in it! I hope it helps! I know it excites me to rid my bedroom floor of tripping hazards.

p.s. - as a bonus, I did clean up and organize my main bookshelf this weekend. I got rid of a couple of random things I had in the stacks, but all in all, being able to begin an e-list of all my books will help when I feel like I have nothing to read. Ha!

Getting Rid #4

no... i didn't give my car away. :o) but i did get rid of many, many things from the trunk.

that's good, right? the thing that drove me to do it was because i had to get to my spare tire! :o( someone slashed my front driver's tire so my neighbor Jim changed it for me... but i had to ask him to wait while i moved things to get the spare out. that's awful!

anyway... so while he worked on the spare, i worked on getting rid of things. old posters from teaching; some REALLLLY old candy; shoes; general papers that were just old; etc.

this is just a shot of our outdoor trash can that i used to load my garbage into. see that blue thing in the bottom right corner? it's a boomerang. i'm so random!

Getting Rid #3

Not because I don't love prayer or maps or VOM or wall hangings or even 2006... but it's just time to get rid.

I'm tossing my wall poster - 2006 "get involved" prayer map.

Getting Rid #2

I know there's a big debate in the world about which day is the first one of the week. Is Sunday a weekend? Is it the first day? Well, I've always believed that it was the first day of the week... so I hope you won't mind that I jumped on my "getting rid" for the week.

This is getting fun for me. I'm wondering what's going to happen if I stay so anxious each week by the time April rolls around. I might be out of stuff.

If you could see this tote in person, you might understand what I mean.
Its overflowing. Old files, trash, weird angel candles/decorations, crumpled Christmas paper, an old pillow (I tried to wash it, but it has a big honey mustard stain on it - long story)... anyway... here's to week 2!

Don't know what I'm talking about? Check This out...

Getting Rid #1

Well, here you go.

This one's a "two-fer"... wooden sleigh and snowman salt and pepper shakers.
(the glue stick isn't going anywhere... I just wanted you to see their size)

lemme know if you want them. at 5 p.m. today their going in the breakroom at my job with a sticky note that says "free for you!"

and just in case you're wondering... i don't even know where i got the shakers. maybe a hand-me-down from a past roommate perhaps? the sleigh was a gift pack set i got from a past employee. i think it might have had lotion or candy or something in it... but it's pretty sturdy.

so tonight begins one of my resolutions

... i'm getting rid of one thing (at least) that i own per week for this entire year.

it sounds like a lot of stuff, right? good! i'm certain there are at LEAST 52 things in my room/home that i don't need (or even know i still have)... so check back later and you can find a photo of what i'm ridding myself of this week.

if you want it, you better speak up fast! :o)
