Ooh! I already did a book purge this week, so I will play with magazines. Do I really need all the back issues of mothering? I didn't think so.

Yeah, I recycled all of my magazines about 9ish months ago because I don't have time to read them...I mean, who am I kidding, I can barely go to the bathroom by myself. The only reason I get on here is because I stay logged in all day so I can stop in when the kids happen to be playing nicely and I get on here when I am nursing. NOW if I could just get DH to purge his magazines I would be a happy lady

So true. DH is the cook round these parts and he "needs" every back issue of Cooks Illustrated because of all the great recipes.

Since we keep all our mags in one place, it was a pretty easy process to recycle all mine.

Re: Minimalist Mini Challenge for December 9th!!!

I need to do magazines too... I mean am I really ever going to make the recipes in all those issues of VT that I have been hanging on to? Not likely... Books are one area I have a hard time letting go of. I will if there's something I read and don't care for, (or a gift book that I scratch my head at) or if a friend borrows and forgets to give it back I don't say much, but I'm a bit of a book addict. I will do a double-check today though b/c we have more books than space on the shelf so I can probably get rid of a *few*

Yes! Yes, you do need all those back issues of Mothering, and so do I!

See, I have a problem. But I'm going to try to work on it right now.

Deep breath.... they are all in the recycle bin. It is actually quite sad because I love Mothering and now it is not around anymore and I did refer back to past issues.

Are you really doing this to me? LOL

I went through last night and boxed about 16 books for the library book store. I am going to go through my paperbacks tonight and see what I can take to the exchange and what can go to the thrift store and what borrowed material is ready to go!

Re: Minimalist Mini Challenge for December 9th!!!

Ok I managed to pull like 25ish books before the kids decided to try and "help" me. Now they are in bed so I will continue this mini challenge on in to tomorrow morning.

I am just not sure what to do with all of these books. I sold several but they took a long time to sell and I didn't make much of anything off of them. We could use the little extra money BUT maybe there is a better way. We don't have any bookstores like half price books around here. Maybe I can donate to the library? Do they take donations at all libraries?
