I am Mama Hear Me Roar turned me on to a new blog called You Are What You Keep today and it inspired me. I’m starting a new routine. Saturdays will be used to keep me working on making my house and life the simplest and clean that I can. Both me and my husband tend to hold on to things that are not loved or used and it is taking over our home. I do not want this to become a habit for my sons. I will find 10 things each week to get rid of in some way. They will be either donated, sold, or thrown away. My fav kind of donation is the kind I put on the curb and mark as Free! and someone just comes by and picks it up. I don’t have to go anywhere and it gets used by someone that needs it.
By the end of the year I will have gotten rid of 250 things.
On the chopping block this week are:
A tv stand that we don’t use anymore
Selling our single stroller on craigslist
finding 5 things that are in our junk drawr to toss
and finding 3 pieces of clothing to toss.
I have a week to do this and will be back next week.
Here are pics of the stroller that we are selling if anybody is interested in it for $100. We bought it 2 years ago for $250 in Iceland. It’s a European Graco stroller/pram. It has rubber wheels and great suspension. My oldest loves this stroller but we do not need 2 strollers in the house. It also has a rain cover and mosquito netting and a cover over the lap for super cold days.
