    Yppej: Sounds like you also got rid of a few "sparks annoyance" items!

    I recently went threw bath towels and kitchen towels and did the same. It’s ridiculous to have drawers or hall linen closet jammed backed with stuff. It is easy now to find stuff.

    We inherited two buckets of shells when we bought our Hermann house. The woman two owners ago was from Florida so I’m sure the shells originated with her. I like shells so that’s why didn’t throw them away but I didn’t know what I was going to do with him.


    Well, lo and behold, someone put a request out on Nextdoor for many shells because she is rebuilding a large crowd out in her backyard. Yay! She got the shells.

    Travel brochures and related materials for trips outside the region. After my last excursion I decided I want to stay closer to home and spend more time on attractions and less driving.

    DH went through his socks and got rid of a bunch he doesn't like. Those went into fabric recycling bag. I added an unloved bra. DH also culled some items that were languishing in the kitchen cupboard.

    It's inspiring to read about de-cluttering successes.

    There is one closet in this house that could really use a purge, but none of the stuff in there is mine, so it would take some cooperation. I could swear nothing in there even gets used, because no one wants the chore of stuffing the pile back in and trying to get the doors closed, but for some reason there is always resistance to getting rid of it. Perhaps it is time to bring up the topic again.

    By the way, if anyone has towels/sheets/blankets that are too worn or stained to donate to a thrift store, most animal shelters can use them. They go through a lot of that sort of thing.
    The more you know, the less you need.
