Got rid of 3 of 4 of my DH's non-working vehicles, two this past week!  Had to basically junk them but I have a backyard and a driveway again.  So liberating.  This purging stuff is good.

Mailed off a package. It's been sitting around for a month!!

Dropped off two large bags of clothes at a friends house.

Sold an organizer my daughters no longer use.

Contacted the PD about an exercise machine I have in the basement. I thought they might want it for their weight room. Waiting to hear back. I would love to get rid of that beast! It's been in pieces on the floor for years.

Listed my two sofas on Facebook today. :) I'm ready for new ones.

I'll be listing my dining set soon. I have someone coming tonight to give me an estimate on built in bench seating with storage.

I also called a friend about my dh's Cobra Mustang. If she's not interested anymore I might use it as a trade in on a new vehicle. My oldest has her permit so we'll need two vehicles soon.

Dropped of 4 bags of clothes to Goodwill! We purged before we moved but we were able to do more when we unpacked. I put in nice new closet organizers and it feels great to not have stuff crammed in.
You will forever be my always.

DonnaP-Me too!  I'm ready tp play again....so last night I went through undergarment and sock drawers and got rid of anything I no longer want.  Also the basket in the kitchen I toss articles, coupons, etc into and purged out anything outdated/no longer needed.  Not much but it is a start to getting back in the swing of it.

I did a major shredding session today and filled 3 large garbage bags full of old papers from my home office.

Taking a break to give my new shredder some time to cool down.

Miss you forever baby girl, my Pru!

On friday took 20 items of clothing to consignmennt, they took 14, the rest is going to donation.  Came home and went through closet again, set aside 10 more items and 6 pair of summer shoes I did not touch this year for donation.

Moving stuff into my new shed from garage and basement on Sunday I was able to throw out even more and have a bike and set of dishes I'm bringing to thrift store tomorrow.
You will forever be my always.
