Yes. I do believe it made a difference.
I actually cleared it out on Sunday evening before our home group came over. It took all of about five minutes to make a few trips to my Suburban which was parked in the garage that’s right outside that door.
It’s Friday now, and I’ve been driving around all week with that stuff still waiting to be dropped off at the thrift store.
Here’s hoping two pieces of styrofoam that rub together and squeak and a bell that rings as I drive will help me to remember to drop it all off before it’s time to load up for Spring Break at the Lake after this next week.
(Fingers are crossed.)
So what did I declutter in February?
Well, in addition to hauling that pile out to the Suburban, I “got rid of” a big desk. It’s actually now blocking the other side of the door to the garage, waiting to be hauled out tomorrow.
- Threw away or took to the Donate Spot many of the things that were COVERING the desk that’s now gone.
- Donated books to the BSF children’s program where I teach, or added them to the Donate Spot.
- Pitched the nothing-wrong-with-them-except-that-we-DON’T-NEED-THEM leftover Valentines.
And I’m sure you’ll be happy to know . . . that I have found a perfect home for Carlina Emmy. The aunt who worked so diligently to get her for me back in the Crazy for Cabbage Patch Eighties reads my blog and asked if she could have her for future granddaughters. Yay!
Except, of course . . . that I put Carlina straight in the Suburban so I’d remember to take her to my aunt . . . and then my daughter happened to remember how much she DOES love her.
OK. It’s time for me to hear what you decluttered this month, or your VERY good and TOTALLY logical reason for not being able to declutter. You can share in the comments or leave a link to a post on your own blog.
If you link up a blog post, PLEASE be sure to link back here within your post. If you’re not sure how to do that, just send me an email and I’ll be happy to help.
