Yesterday about 10 boxes and 10 bags of assorted donations went to the Vietnam Veterans pick up.

Don't know if I can do better than that.

1 brand new shirt (too small for dh) will be given to my son
1 cat doorholder will be sent to charity shop (they are open here)
1 small battered decorative water can will be given to gift shop as well as 1 horse candle holder
Old back cushion for watching tv will go in the recycle bin (it's all stained)
1 cat litter box and litter will be either given away or sold (as ds's cat disappeared and never came back)

I got a huge sack of trash out of my bedroom. Threw away alot of papers I had been keeping. Allen took a sack of bath towels and old sheets for the shed. Had the pile started for awhile but topped it today and he took it. Have some old shirts to go to rags.

finally got the baby changing table dropped off at the thrift shop (been waiting in the garage for that a few months), and dropped off the bag of knick-knacks I had assembled yesterday.

The one place I take my used books too is still closed. The other place where I took things last month is no longer taken donations due to lack of storage. They are overwhelmed with all the decluttering people have done during the shut down.

I've just been trying to keep up with the paper clutter around here.

I did it! I got 3 bags and 5 boxes to the thrift store today. I only have a large broken TV and laptop to get to the electronics drop off site. If I push maybe tomorrow if not Monday or Tuesday.

The guys (Allen and Ryan) are outside now picking up the yard behind garage and burning crap!!!!:):):):)

It has kinda become where they put the scrap metal. Won't have a truck load but hope to get it taken up in the next month or sooner.

Have some trees to cut out small ones.

Lucie, people do cute things redoing changing tables. I am sure it will find a good new home for its actual use or a new one.
I use changing table to put my plants on when I bring them in for the winter.

Nothing like moving to help one get rid of stuff. I don't know how many boxes I have to get rid of, but it's quite a few. The trash barrel has been filed up several times, too. Still more to do, but it's coming along. I'll be glad when it's finished!

Oh my, I don't know how many bags of trash was burnt today! Ryan has REALLY overhauled his room over the last 4 or 5 days. He threw out so many soxs with holes, clothes that were so raggy and he has a huge sack of clothes that don't fit him but he knows a couple who they should fit and he actually left to take them there. He said when I am done the sack is leaving here.

Teigans room is cleaned. Do have some clothes to sort thru.

Kids bathroom is cleaned and threw stuff out of the medicine cabinet and got more towels for rags.

Now to keep on going while everybody is in the mood!!!!!
