It's All Gotta Go!
I had THE best time yesterday making use of Freecycle! I realized yesterday morning that it wasn't already 98 degrees by 9:00 a.m., so I scurried up the ladder to the attic to do a bit of therapeutic purging while the cool weather held. Whenever I get stymied by the lack of space in my house, I just start tossing. Watching an episode of Small Space, Big Style on HGTV just pushed me over the edge. Really - if someone can live in 430 sq. feet of space, I should be able to figure out where to put MY stuff!
So what does one do with unused skis in June - Freecycle! I was able to part with a pair of skis and poles (with their own bag), a pair of ski boots (with their own holder), 2 Elvis VHS tapes, a Fisher Price hockey/pool table, cookie cutters, a cookie press, a coffee maker, and a pair of 20 lb. hand weights (I told my sweetheart that he needed to put them away or I would - so there!). I think I started posting around 10 a.m. and everything was claimed and removed from my porch by 3:00 p.m. Woohoo! I wish losing weight were this easy!
And now I have an empty porch again. A faded door mat and pulverized sidewalk chalk never looked so good!
