As an addendum to yesterday's post... I am happy to say that not only did we get everything cleared out, but we also had much success at the book sale! After the sale, we proudly stuck to our plan, and donated all leftover books and magazines to the Friends of the Library, and they were super happy to have them! Mission accomplished!
Well, here we are, a week later and it is time to put my moxy. skills to the test. Remember last week when we made a plan to clean out the big kids' toy cupboard?
I arrived Thursday, and we arrived at the house and assessed the situation. We agreed that there were things to be culled, tossed, donated, and dusted. Conveniently, we know someone who is having a book sale this weekend, so we decided to start by going through the cookbooks first. When you are a big foodie, you find that you accumulate a lot of books, gadgets, goo-gags, and unnecessaries from family and friends. It takes a strong woman to know when to let that stuff go. Fortunately, I am working with that woman... we formed a solid plan, and reconvened Friday to get down to business.
