My goal this year was to organize, donate, organize, live with less, donate some more. I am proud to say that I continue to work on that goal. Except…..my 3 month rule has spilled over to 6 months. School has kicked my butt this semester! Nonetheless, I continue to find things to donate. Things. Why do we need so many things? I thought I would share the latest donation collection.
Items are being added each day. My plan is to take the donations to a local charity/thrift store. Local stores receive less donations than bigger named stores. Not trying to persuade you, just giving my opinion. All donations, regardless of the organization, help someone in need. The balls and a few other items will be donated to a local toy drive. I will share my final donation collection soon. From this point on, I will not buy an item unless I have a place to use it. It will not, I repeat, will not be put in my storage closet.
Have a great weekend!
Find a few things to donate :)
On Monday, I shared pictures of our disorganized garage. I wanted to share our progress with you. Two shelves are complete!
Here is a small work table we are building with leftover scrap wood.
One more shelf to go…. and LOTS of sweeping!
Several projects are going on in my home right now. If you read my blog from time to time, you know how I jump from one thing to the next. Seriously, I have never been able to sit still for very long – it is just in my nature. So, along with the front entrance, the boys’ bedroom, and the guest bedroom, we have now started organizing the garage. We needed to to this project when we first moved in, but it always got pushed to the bottom of the to do list.
So junky! Very stressful just going in there. Jump over this, trip over that!
A shame really.
I had one little space to work on furniture. Difficult to get to the lawnmower to cut grass.
And, yes, the tumbleweed is still there too. I have an idea for that…saw it in a PB catalog once.
We are making progress.
We loaded the back of the truck with items for donation and junk for the dump. The back seat was full too. After the big drop off, we made a trip (or 3) to Home Depot for supplies to build a few shelves! The best husband ever – which happens to be my husband – has completed one shelf. Which happened to be built in 100+ degree heat. It was like a sauna in there! But he loves me… Only 2 more shelves to go! I can’t wait to show everyone my organized garage!! I am so super excited.
Hope your Monday has been tolerable .
Last week, I finished decluttering 2 spaces in my home. My laundry room and my kitchen. It is amazing how it feels to walk into my kitchen knowing that a whole buncha junk isn’t hiding in the cabinets . I donated several items and put a few in my storage closet to use in other areas of the house. Welcome to my clutter free kitchen! My son bought me this sign several years ago on our first trip to NYC. Even my 5 year old was aware of my lack of cooking skills.
