The table is filling up!

610 days, or 1 year, 7 months, 30 days to go.

To Goodwill:
1 heavy man's coat
2 old winter jackets

To Rummage sale or flea market table:
Onion bloom cutter
Three more cookbooks
Several animal reference books
a really nice new zipper portfolio folder
Nativity Scene Christmas Decoration

To Trash/Shredder: Any personal papers will be boxed and eventually taken to a shredder.)
Several inches of old papers

My rummage sale table is getting full! I have never had a rummage sale, or sold anything on ebay, Craig's list, or at the Flea market. I have tossed a lot of stuff over the last couple of years, and also used Freecycle or the Free listings at Craig's list. Goodwill has also been a stop in my life.

I have decided the best thing to do is to put stuff into a box or two and seal them up with tape. I have plenty of room to store them for awhile, and I think it will be easier for me to put stuff out there if it doesn't "go" right away. I need to visit some Rummage sales this spring and see what people price things at. I really don't care about "making money," but it might be easier to part with my stuff if a few people show they want some of it.

I have decided a good way to cull things is to imagine that both my husband and I are gone and my daughter is dealing with our stuff. I know our tastes are in no way similar, and neither of us is sentimental. She would dump the lot!
