    I dropped off three bags at a local thrift store yesterday. I am starting to reclaim my porch.

    Today I dropped off 2 big bags to the Salvation Army thrift store. I gave them the nicer stuff that I didn't want to donate to Goodwill.

      @fantomenmom I like donating to the Salvation Army, too. Goodwill is the most convenient for me, however, as they have many locations and better hours. I try to now plan my donations so I can do the Salvation Army or some other place that is not Goodwill.

    Besides my normal decluttering today, I also got rid of 5 new fake flowers. They were in my craft supplies, but I used them for Tabeltopics at Toastmasters and let everyone who participated keep their flower. What a clever way to get rid of clutter!

      @fantomenmom Ha! Yes, I do the same thing - get rid of my "junk" by giving it to others. I do try to be selective, though, and truly give it away as a present, or otherwise donate it to a place where I know someone will benefit. Isn't it great to know someone can use it?

        @chenmingi I hope
        they liked the flowers. Each of them had for Tabletopics to talk about who they would give these flowers to. And many wanted to put them on graves.

    I threw away stuff this morning and this evening. Plus, I have a stack of books to try to sell. The books out on the table in front of our wall is almost empty. I think there were about 190 books on the table as I added them, and there are 15 left now. Wow!

      @fantomenmom How did you manage to convince yourself that these books are useless? Were they paperback novels. Just inquisitive to know.

        @priyantha Not useless but rather I wanted to let someone else enjoy them. I have plenty of books to enjoy and not enough space for all of them.

          @fantomenmom I also viewed the 1000 books that I gave away as not useless, but they could better serve other people at this point in my life.

          Good job on finding better homes for those books. I am encouraged to hear other people decluttering and gaining freedom for their lives.

    The book table is almost empty now. Out of 180 books or so, there are only 20 left on the table. I also gave away some tourist brochures today. I don't need them anymore, and the girls who got them will use them for a school culture project. win-win

    Hello my new 43T friends. I was LOB on the old site and am now fantomenmom. I am mom to 4 sons, but the 3 oldest are adults now. I am still homeschooling my youngest son and spend alot of time with him. I think life is full of little adventures and am often having fun. I consider myself an optimist and am usually upbeat and happy. For the past almost 20 years I have been going back and forth every year spending the school year in AZ and the spring/summer in Sweden. Sweden is home in my heart, but AZ has been a fantastic place to homeschool my sons. Also, I am a storyteller, teacher, workshop trainer and public speaker. Just for fun, I like to make art. And I relax by reading books or making art. So excited to meet both new friends and old ones here at the new 43T!
