Wow, the extra stuff in our life seems to know no end

The latest things to leave the house?

- Piles of old papers belonging to my husband. He still has to bring home the work files he wants to keep though (sigh!).

- A book that was in said pile of papers.

- An empty wooden box

- Extra hanging files and folders.

- Fireplace matches - you know, the extra long ones.

- Empty CD cases and rewriteable CDs.

- A map to the state where my parent's lived.

- A top I keep trying to make work for me - it doesn't.

- Keys that belong to nothing currently in our life.

Just posted via email to be taken by someone I hope! If that doesn't work the I'll try Freecycle.

- An oak roll top desk that was a 14th birthday gift to my older son 30 years ago.

Next up for curating:

- Travel related items including briefcases and suitcases

- Blankets & quilts

- Paper photos


  1. You are making great progress in clearing out unneeded things.

  2. Having just downsized and moved ... I feel your pain. Photos and memorabilia are the hardest to part with, and it takes courage to throw out those old keys!


Simple summer reading bingo

If you don’t live in Portland, OR you can’t get a prize BUT you could give yourself a treat!  I like this one because it has good categories...
