Finally gave away two big bags of stuff!

harriethomeownerAugust 28, 2008

I'd been throwing unwanted clothes and shoes into some big bags for at least 6 months but never could get up the fortitude to give them away. Finally, Purple Heart called and I put them out and they're gone! I don't even remember all that was in there, but whatever it was, I'm sure I won't miss it.

Now will have to start another bag ...

And work on getting a basement's worth of stuff listed on Freecycle ...

That's great and the more you do the easier it gets.

The best part is that you won't even miss that stuff. Doesn't it feel good? Big smile! MaryLiz

Good for you to finally let go of it. They do say that if you haven't used what's in the bag or box for 6 months, it means you don't need it.

Sometimes all we need is that push to get something done or just a phone call. It's easier when someone says they'll come and get it because it really takes away any excuses to hang on to it.

Yup. I have no idea what I gave away last year via Freecycle but I sure love the empty space it left!
