    Will keep walker "for now". (Ugh.)

    Yesterday went through Christmas stuff and put together two small bags of stuff to give away, and a box of old family ornaments to send to my son for his son. He's the most sentimental of the kids, and so he ought to have them. If he wants to pitch them, that's fine.

    Will try to do this every year until assisted living time, when will have one tiny tree.

    Good reminder - I should go through my gift bag collection and see if I can give away a bunch of holiday gift bags on our local FB giving site.

    You are a better woman than I. I just toss the damn gift bags, so irritating to me, I don’t want them around, I don’t wanna have to fuss with them.

    We went to one of those “crap tons of crap giveaways in gift bags as prizes” events on Sunday. I managed to give away while there one bag, and we came home with two. One had an object I immediately tossed. The other held Lindt chocolates, yay!

    I will admit to giving away my own piece of crap at this giveaway.

    I have always reused them, but now that I have finally extricated us from gift exchanges, I need to find another way to get rid of them.
    That reminds me - I thought this was the cutest thing:

    Now that you mentioned it I have a ton of bags because I only give a few gifts a year locally. The ones I mail I don’t bother. I think I will offer them on Nextdoor.

    I posted the offer and already have 5 people who want them, so I'll be drawing a name tomorrow.
