Quote for the day:
Chocolate-coated truth tastes better...
but it's probably not as good for you.
Well...I've been *thinking* about blogging for a while now...and I guess I finally got up the nerve to do it! :)
My impetus for starting the blog today is that I've decided to embark on a journey that I have read about on other blogs...so it's not an original idea...sorry... But I can learn to live with that fact...rarely anything I do is an original idea...but I'm GREAT at researching and learning from others! :)
In April of this year I hosted my 50th Birthday party for friends and family. In the getting ready for the party I went through some (but not enough) decluttering. Then this past spring, Andy did a lot of decluttering in the basement which houses most of his stuff, ie. tools, etc. I/we still have waaaayyy too much stuff...stuff that we don't use...stuff we don't need...stuff that needs to leave our property for greener pastures...
Therefore, I am going to attempt something that I have seen on other blogs...365 things in 365 days. The goal is to get rid of at least one thing per day. This can include donating items to charity, giving items away to persons you know that can use them, trashing items, selling items on eBay, Freecycling items (www.freecycle.org), or putting them in a pile for yardsaling....but the yardsaling thing counts ONLY if you actually have a yardsale! LOL And, yes...we do have at least one yardsale a year.
If anyone wants to come along and join me on this quest, I whole-heartedly invite you to join me. In my quilting my motto is "Better Done Than Perfect"...and this is going to be my motto for this undertaking, too. The goal is go get rid of clutter...never mind trying to follow the rules perfectly.
I invite comments from you on anything, but especially if you get rid of something that day, let me know what it is.
Sooooo...let me get this party started...
The first item(s) out the door today are 2 skin care items that I've had in my bathroom cabinet for at least 5 years...I didn't like them, but because they cost money I never wanted to throw them out. Now they are way past the point of being useful and even if they were still useful, I wouldn't use them...I've already proven that point...LOL...so...in the trash they went!
