I've had a hard time keeping it up on weekdays, but I've been filling my bags on the weekends -- and getting rid of things! The house doesn't look any less full though....
I got rid of a box and a bag of art supplies at the Bizzy B's used stamp sale. Unfortunately I brought home 2 bags -- mostly books and some punches. Yes, I spent some money, $69. But it was all used and super cheap :) And most of it is going to school! (I did say at the get-go that I would buy used items from yard sales and thrift shops -- this counts :)
Other things that are leaving or that have left:
Bag for Goodwill
Bag for a Woman's Shelter
Box of Books for my School's Book Sale
Bag of broken computers
Bag of old food from my fridge, sadly
a set of 3 chairs
I'm going through more stuff today to toss -- February is almost over and this challenge was a great SUCCESS!
Have you read what Jenny Doh is doing this year? She is wearing the same dress every day to raise money for Water.org. For more than 20 years, Water.org has been finding long-term solutions that involve buy-in from local community members within developing nations to find ways to support sustainable ways in which water can be brought to people who need it.. Read about it here! I love the black dress that she is wearing -- she is layering it and accessorizing it differently every day. If you follow her blog you will see how she makes it look different every day. I wonder how sick she will be of it by February 13, 2013? I'm not sure if I could do that, but I would definitely try, if I was raising money for a good charity. Here is a picture of Jenny in her dress:
