    I've decided to declutter the sweater I'm wearing today at work. I don't love it and I certainly have plenty of others. I'll wash it up and put it in the current box of stuff for the thrift store.

    Microwave oven, it growled, clunked and stopped when I tried to use it the other day. Added it to my neighbor’s pile for special trash pickup. (We get one “large pickup” a year included in our garbage fees and I already used mine to get rid of the old refrigerator.) Considering whether or not to replace the microwave…

    Some pictures of people in Nebraska circa 1920-1925. I just didn't know who they were, and Grandmother did not write their names on the back like she usually did.

    This is the easiest way to declutter clothes for myself with no regrets afterwards - LOL.

    I just decluttered two leaf bags of clothes painlessly, with Ridwell. Just put them on the porch. No need to schlep out to the car or waste gas.

    Yeah, I've used our Vietnam Veterans of America pick-up service to purge 2 houses of unwanted clothing and housewares. SO easy.

    The regular pickup service seems to be on hiatus, maybe due to COVID or labor shortages. I hope it's temporary.

    I don't make a special trip to drop stuff off - I put it in the back of the car and when I'm close by the thrift store, I drop it off.

    Yeah--I miss thrifting. Now it's time to release items back to the thrift stream.

    Five aluminum drinking bottles. These were the first gen, not insulated. They would sweat with cold drinks. Also, the mouths were too small for ice cubes to go in easily.

    One of hubby's work shirts (don't tell but his office has asked me to purge out the less presentable ones). His annual supply of new will be here soon!

    A zip.out jacket liner. It would never occur to me to zip the liner in, I would just grab a sweater to wear if it were that cold.
