I am slowly but surely working toward my minimalism goals. It’s tough. I admit it. Yes, I buy things (not only that I thrift!) but… I’ve actually been feeling guilty now each time I purchase things, because it’s a setback from my goals.I really have been planning a more in depth post (or posts) about minimalism and my goals. I don’t really feel that many of the posts we see about minimalism are entirely realistic and almost get to the point of extremism. Not at all what I am.
Anyway, this is my recent haul that’s going out to be donated. There is a local thrift store by me where all the proceeds go to battered women and victims of domestic violence. They even have beds and safe places for local women and children and strictly hire unemployed , work release, and at risk youth. This place is great.
The last four years (yes years, slowly but surely) I have donated about four to five truckloads about this size (some bigger).
TV stand, drawers, two cookie jars, 15 books, a crock pot, a lamp, art supply box, mail sorters, crafting drawers, about 2500 pieces of scrapbook paper, endless crafting supplies, 26 articles of clothing, 2 picture frames, DVD cases and paper inserts, Christmas items, about 20 small kids toys and various other small knick knacks I can’t remember. All getting out of my house.
Lula is inspecting and I think she approves that all these things need to go.
(She’s not going though! The pug stays!)
