    I threw out a pair of sandals that were ruined by rain and falling off my feet. I hated to do it, but when it's time to say goodbye...
    Also threw out a pair of espadrilles that HURT my feet.

    as I have posted elsewhere we are getting ready to put our home on the market. Tackled the basement, the final frontier, and cleaned out the corner with kids toys. Listed several big items on craigslist and continue to pare down my craft and sewing supplies. I went through my quilting books and scanned the few projects I actually thought I would do and donated the books to the library. I went from two big bookshelves of books to less than 1/2 in the past week. My stack of hundreds of quilt magazines are all gone, as well as a big box of fabrics I gave to my friend who sews in a church ministry. The craft supplies are among the hardest things, sorting out what I actually use.
    Also, I have a friend who works in a very poor school so every time I find paper, a pen or any type of school supply I put it in a box for her. I'll bring it to her this weekend. We only need a few pens in this house with two of us, not hundreds.

    I sold my E-Z-Up tent, and gave the person who bought it a lot of yard tools, bee equipment, and other stuff that I won't use in the next couple of years to him also. I worked on his farm a couple of years ago. I was glad to give the stuff to someone who would really use it.

    I made two runs to Goodwill with other stuff from my garage. Some of the stuff I let go was boxes of old Mother Earth magazines. That gave me a pang. I'm still not sure why that bothered me more than some of the other things. Letting go of an old dream, I guess.

    I did bring stuff back to my apartment, but it's things I think I will use or can sell or trade more easily in my new town.

    I do think the garage in my old house is spawning new things for me to get rid of. Just saying.

    Friday, I get rid of the rest of the stuff in the garage. I have to pay someone to haul it, but at least it will be done. In less than a month, I close on the house, unless something falls through. I wish I had the words to express what a burden that will be off me.

    Then I'll declutter the storage space, and by the end of June, everything I own will be in my apartment. Either cherished, or used regularly, or both.
