It is so therapeutic to unload belongings that go unused and clutter the house. I am avid that as little as possible goes into the trash so instead I donate or sell back as much as I can.
Today I am thankful for the following:
St Vincent De Paul: a wonderful community thrift store where I dropped off a van load of unused 'stuff' today. Sadly several of these items have been in my basement collecting dust since we moved it.
(Did you know that Frank Lloyd Wright often drew his house blueprints without basements? He believed that basements fed into our human desire to keep more than we needed. In my case this is quite true.)
Half Price books because they even take old VHS and LP's.
Art teachers everywhere, especially Mrs. Smart because she seems so pleased to receive the 'stuff' that was cluttering up my work space.
Once Upon a Child second hand store who now has a kids kitchen play set I hadn't been able to part with...
and lastly to the metal recycle guy (who ever you are) who promised to haul away 2 metal doors, an old freezer, and an unused gas dryer one day next week.
Unloading feels SO good!
