    After I dropped a load at the thrift store I went to Ross and came home with 3 shirts, a purse and 10 pairs of socks for 50. Oops!

    Good job!

    i emptied an entire attic this week, but it wasn’t mine:
    one full sized pickup truck bed of cardboard to be fed into my dad’s burn barrel
    one very full small sized suv load to the thrift store
    Half the big pick up to the recycling center
    full 30 gallon trash can for the dump
    filled the bag recycling bin at the grocery store
    Paper ream box of stuff for my uncle

    then I half filled the suv again and brought it home.
    some will go to the used book store tomorrow
    some will go to my classroom tomorrow
    some will go to the reuse store for art/craft/teacher/office supplies next week
    styrofoam peanuts will go to ups
    some us being stored for my son and dil
    One item goes to the food bank on monday
    and the rest (two boxes of canning jars and a small quilt are more than half by volume) is mine now.

    I have 41 for a 4 season climate. 3 are for yardwork, painting, etc - s/s shirt, l/s shirt, sweatshirt

    Of the other 38 one will likely go soon. It is stained and most of my stains don't come out in the wash.

    I am not counting one top stained like that waiting for room in the trash, 3 blazers (for first, second and third interviews - when I was jobhunting I had one company call me in for a fourth but that is rare), pajama tops, bathing suit tops, or outerwear jackets.

    We also have a 4 season climate. I did not count pajama tops because that wasn’t included in the book I read. I am at a good place for me personally.
