I'm still keeping on keepin' on with this ... a couple of sweaters that I haven't worn in a year or more here, a cushion I'm bored with there, a quick clear-out of the table linen drawer contents ...I even persuaded Best Beloved to have a Coat Cull and a Trouser Trounce to make some space in his drawers . A shabby shoe shuffle is next on the list.

Since your vacation plans have been foiled, you can spend that time trashing stuff.

I picked up an old shirt out of a pile, and decided it would go to Goodwill. I threw it back in the pile. Maybe later. I made the decision, though.

Nope. We've booked another cottage elsewhere ...

I got rid of three bags of clothes and a frying pan yesterday. And came back from the charity store with less than that, honest, and a new set of shelves to store more of the crap I'm not parting with on (rather than the floor )

well I might be undexaggerating, hard to tell, but I'm sure it wasn't more and....I got shelves! And the skates and shin guards and hockey stick were infinitely more interesting than what we got rid of.....

The procrastination thread has resurfaced, so why shouldn't this one, especially inspired by the "100 things" thread, too. I've recently restarted trying to either get something out of the house (throw out, give away, sell, take to charity shop) or tidy up some neglected pile of crap each day. Just chipping away ...

Go Limey!

I'm trying to cut out practically everything I own, I'll be moving cross country soon! Everything I want to take with me must fit in my tiny car. It's been slow going thus far, I also have taken down one box (plastic container) and one drawer so far...

That's bigger than my car - you'd be surprised what you can fit into it!
