I’ve been Freecycling again!!!
Today I got rid of 7 (yes, 7!!!) 13 gallon garbage bags of kids’ hangers. I organize the kids clothes by color (Caity pink, Jacob blue, Brea red, Rory white). But, I had way more “extras” than room to store them. So, I got rid of over ½ the hangers that were in the bin in which they belong. I know there are strays in the bedrooms & in the laundry room, though. The woman who picked them up, said she’d take those too. Lots of people in her family have either just had a baby or due to have one. It’s good to get the extra hangers out of my house & given to someone who could really use them.
I gave my mil 5 Wilton cake pans (Strawberry shortcake, ballet slippers, ladybug, tractor & a large sheet cake pan). By giving them to her, I can still use them if I need to.
I also got rid of some curtains, kitchen towels/dishcloths, an overnight bag, a computer monitor, some of dh’s too big clothes and some other miscellaneous stuff.
I also had some clothes of mine that I no longer wear. I looked it over and deemed it not worthy to give to someone else, so I just trashed it.
I am glad to be rid of about 10-11 garbage bags full of clutter. And, I’m happy everything went to those who could use them!
I just got through reading Peter Walsh’s: It’s All Too Much. In it, he says to keep a garbage bag or bin (labeled) for giveaways handy. I’d already been doing this. I was given a tote bag that I didn’t need or want, so I was gonna freecycle it, but then I thought I will use it FOR freecycling. I figured I’d fill it up as I go along and when full, I’d post the contents on FC.
Peter also recommended taking said bag around the house for 5 minutes 5 days a week & seeing how much you can fill it with. Just think how much you could bless others (& your home) if you did this for a whole year!~Cherylann
