So I need to get this posted even though I suppose Sunday technically is week 7 of the Making Space challenge.
December 9 — to the thrift store: 3 Christmas CDs (listening to them and winnowing them out), a pair of decorative-edge scissors and a rack for holding scissors; 2 hardcover books I decided against reading.
December 13 -- to the trash: 5-6 boxes of outdated jello; 2 boxes of outdated pudding mix; a jar of very, very outdated fig pastry filling.
Also to the trash -- a tall kitchen bag FULL of worn-out hats, gloves, sweaters, etc.
To the thrift store: 3 hats and a pair of 1980s leg warmers!
To a lady who felts wool sweaters and turns them into mittens: a black trash bag full of old wool sweaters neither of us will ever wear again.
We usually set up our Christmas tree in front of the picture window of our living room. A cedar chest ordinarily resides under that window and we always move it to make way for the tree. This year I decided that we would declutter the contents of that chest (a project that's been on my list for months!) when we moved it. Hence, all of the woolens being disposed of. It feels great to have that project taken care of!
