    5 a day for November...

    Hi there
    I need to move a few more things out of my house so I am challenging myself and anyone who want to join
    to get rid of 5 things a day.
    Mine as of November 2 are...
    ---1 pair of Garden Crocks that were unsafe and damaging to my feet...garbage
    ---1 Bag of Silk Sunflowers and 1 Vase to a group that are using then for centre pieces at a luncheon.
    ---1 Bunch of Silk Daffodils to a...charity
    ---3 pair of underwear...That just needed to go...
    ---6 Tea towels to the Rag Bag.
    ---2 Planters that were broken
    That is a total of 18 items and that is all for now....

    You can read the Marie Kondo threads for more inspiration but you are doing a great job!

    Welcome back, Danna - I thought this thread was going to be about eating more produce!

    LOL...Rosarugosa it does sound like I want to eat more veggies.....and I did that too yesterday and I guess I should have added it in on
    November frugals.

    Sandy I have read Marie Kondo and she is a little over the top for me but, I love her take on decluttering ones life.
    My problem is one of being too good a shopper (couponing etc.)/yard saler/thrift shopper. Also, I live alone now and
    will want to downsize at some point so better to keep things down now.

    Over the past couple of days, I put more books in the "to go" pile.

    Today I recycled some old papers, two phone books and a plastic container, and brought a mug to work to donate to the general office kitchen.

    On Friday and Saturday, I threw out some random papers, plastic bags from gardening soil (DH just dragged them around the side of the house but I tossed them), put more books in the book donation pile. I also took an old expired package of edemame beans and put them outside for the squirrels. They were gone this morning!!
