Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

Great job on the cleanup and purge!  I am so impressed that so many people are sticking with it. :). Now off to find something to get rid of.

I'm working on getting my freezer emptied. Tonight's item is a salmon filet, asparagus and some sourdough bread.  :D

Great job!  I tossed some mail and flyers I didn't need.

Went back into the nightstand drawer and tossed a few more odds and ends today.

3 tops and a pocketbook donated. Feels nice to be looking through warmer weather clothes after this long, dark winter. 
I love you more.

Went through my cabinets and fridge and tossed quite a few expired items. Also went through my purse and tossed or shredded old papers.

I just threw away a pumpkin (yes, you heard that correctly) that had been frozen in my garage since Halloween but that had thawed and started rotting.    :o

Glad you tossed that, TooSoon!  I tossed a sleep mask that the elastic was way stretched out (I have a backup).

Went through front hall closet and got rid of several coats I'd been holding onto for too long.

Okay, we're starting this tomorrow at our house.  We're seriously thinking, planning, a whole lifestyle change that will necessitate getting rid of A LOT of stuff.  I'm catching up on laundry from our vacation today... Tomorrow will be the day!!

Okay, finally got going on this.  Today I went through the tub of things that belonged to S that I had saved for his son.  He's graduating from high school this May, so it's a good time to give them to him.  That also meant finding the book that everyone signed at the funeral and the gigantic stack of cards everyone sent.  What in the heck do you do with that???  They were important to keep early on, but now... Not so much.  I'm never going to look at them again.

Anyway, I found some things I could toss.  And went through a tub with old jackets and snow boots that aren't good enough to donate, so into the burn barrel with them!

Great job!  I have been slacking a lot in this challenge. Been very busy.
