today I made a goal....

I made a goal today to fill the trunk with stuff to donate. A few mths ago that would have been super easy...but now I am having trouble finding enough to fill the trunk! Love it! I am getting somewhere.

And BTW...I am determined to fill that trunk up, even if that means going to the shed and digging through storage!

WTG! I just dropped off three bags of stuff after doing the winter clothes changeover for all five of us. It is so freeing to let that stuff go!

Can I ask what you found to purge? I've been stuck lately. It's like I've gone through all of these areas of my house and don't know how to cut back further even though I know that there is still too much stuff here.

I never went to the storage to finish but I can't take it in the morning, maybe I can find more.

I found a few dishes, a few clothing items, some picture frames, a vase, a jump rope, a package of printer ink to a printer we donated already...oops.

Ugh, I've filled my car more times than I can count, and it's still not hard (and I'm packing the back of an explorer). Drives me insane. Can't wait to get to get to the point you're at!

I still have more to purge, but I think I've kind of hit a plateau. I think I need a third party to suggest things for me to purge. I tried asking my sister when she came over, but she keeps a ton of stuff, so she thought I didn't have enough.
