so, here's the premise:
get rid of 29 bags of stuff from the house in 29 days.
I read about the idea on my friend Don Maddon's blog. He and his wife Susan call it the 30-30. Take 30 bags ( size of your choosing) and number them with the date that you are starting, until you run out. Then each day fill a bag, and get it out of the house. Could be garbage, recycling, donations to a thrift shop. whatever. As long as it leaves the house!
My 29 in 29 is so named because I'm doing it in February, and this year, February has 29 days. Following Don's lead, I will be using the clear bags that you get produce in at the grocery store. I've used masking tape to label each one. I'm sure that at least one ( likely more than one) of these bags will have fabric scraps in it. if you are in Toronto, keep checking my blog -- I'll likely have some kind of cool assemblage materials available to give away! First people to ask for them, get them :)
My stipulation is that all 29 bags must be full and out of the house by Feb 29 at the latest.
So, why aren't I using garbage bags, or at least larger grocery bags? Hello people! I am a HOARDER, Baby Steps okay???? Mr. B had the gall (THE GALL!) to make fun of the bag size. But some of the bags will be larger. None smaller though.
So Day #1 is a bag of bubble envelopes. They are going to a new home with a friend who sells a lot on etsy and doesn't mind re-using envelopes (yay! recycling!!!)
(hey! I used a big bag here -- they wouldn't all fit in a little bag! I'm off to a great start!)
Don't worry -- I'm not going to take pictures of it all :) Although these hipstamatic pics are kind of fun, aren't they?
I have part of this weekend set aside for art, so there will hopefully be some pretty things coming soon!
