The challenge, and my weekend

October 24th, 2011 at 06:48 am

I'm not really in the challenge, as I purged 27 items only one day this week. I got rid of a bunch of frames I was going to use "someday", a sweater, a sweatshirt, a pair of sandals, three purses, a cross-stitch pillow cover that only reminds me of my divorce.... Most things went to Goodwill.

My laundry sorter broke -- it was already on life support, but this time an important joint just disintegrated. I went to Wal-Mart to get a replacement, which I didn't find, but I found something better. They now have slender individual plastic hampers called sorters. I bought four -- for darks, lights, colors and reds. I'm very happy to have a sorter for reds -- I wear red a lot, and it doesn't wash well with anything else. Plus, I will throw pinks and purples into that load. The four sorters were $28. While I was there I also bought some margarine and CoQ10 -- $2 and $25 respectively.

I did not grocery shop, other than the margarine.

I went to Goodwill to look for corduroy pants, which I didn't find. I bought five Blue Willow bread plates and bowls for $1 each. It's not the kind I collect, but I will resell them in the booth (for a lot more!) I also found a brand-new in-the-box drying rack from Target for $5. It had to be assembled, which went well for a change. I also found some bangle bracelets for my grand-nieces' Christmas jewelry boxes.

I went to the zoo with my grandsons on Saturday -- a beautiful day! Spent $10 on McDonalds and $25 on gas. Came home exhausted and had to take a pain pill, but it was fun!

    Brookfield or Lincoln Park? We skipped Boo at the Zoo this year and opted for the a trip to the Arboretum where my parents have a membership, and we saw the scarecrows decorate by the Girl Scouts, very fun.

    Sounds like a good purge, and some good finds, too!

    Great job discarding items!! I find it helps to always be on the lookout for things that are no longer useful.

    Lincoln Park. The grandkids like it better because it's easier to see the animals -- however, probably not as nice a life for the animals in those small spaces! But I am sure they are well cared for -- they were all enjoying pumpkin treats on Saturday.
