    November Purge

    ​This is my first thread so hopefully I'm doing it correctly...

    Yesterday was a great downsizing day. I sold one of my bikes, and I gave away a desk and bureau on Freecycle.

    Next up is the bookshelf. Hopefully I can sort/pack/donate the contents and post the bookshelf by Friday.

    Good work! I don't think there is really a right or wrong way to do this; it's kind of free form.
    I got Mom to go through her scarf collection with me today which took over an hour. Lots of scarves out, maybe 30 - 40, but I did not count them, oddly enough. She probably kept about 20.

    Worn clothes, a worn sheet, and paperwork. I burned a binful of papers now that we are in fireplace season.

    The bank branch I work at is having a clothing drive this month for the local shelter. Good excuse for DH and I to go through the closets and drawers and find some gently-used items we don't wear.

    Some paper plates gathering dust and dingy plastic utensils. I think at some point these items actually looked fine.

    Nice job, everyone!

    Thanks, Iris! You're so right about the bulk. It's amazing to see space instead of furniture.

    I cleaned out the bookshelf. My MIL wants it so it'll wait till the end of the purge, but at least it's empty.

    I gave away an over the door shoe organizer via Freecycle. I boxed up the shoes it contained to be donated. Also in the donation bag: my down coat, snow pants, and a fancy interview shirt.

    I realized that my driver's license will be expiring 6 months after we move. I'm letting it expire. One less thing

    I spent a productive 1.5 hours in the cellar today. Cleaning our cellar is like shoveling sh*t against the tide, but at the moment I have at least the illusion of progress.
