Donations – Part One

I will not be going into much detail here. This picture is from earlier this year. All of this stuff was in Missy’s room (she still is co-sleeping in my room). All of this was ‘crap’ that I needed to get out. Everything went to a local thrift store. This included all sorts of home items, pregnancy items, baby items, and clothing. The printer went to the local recycling facility.

I am always amazed at how much things pile up. Things also tend to pile up as I am a procrastinator. I am trying to give myself a limited spot for donations. More to force myself to deal with it. I do not have the problem where I will go back and take the item out of the box. But that box gets full and I make a second one and that ends up in the way somewhere in the house.

I have also taken a full load of items to our local pregnancy care centre. A mix of items that Missy has outgrown, to big to use, or we will not get around to using it before it expires and a few boxes of pampers.

Cleaning and Organizing – Living Area – Behind the Couch Part One

Okay so there is not a lot that needs to be done in the living room. However the space behind the couch still holds quite a bit of stuff that actually belongs in the office.

I do not actually touch the boxes behind the couch but as you can see here the baby swing started to just catch things.

Going through everything I have a basket for cords. I also have a basket for Command Hooks and the labels I use on storage tubs. The other items still need to find a home though.

*I have since given the white mouse to my Mother.

The items in a line in the middle do not have a place to go. That is not 100% true. The tape I use to label food storage and I was using the Sharpie for that. I have moved them to the tool box.

This small pile of stuff was relocated to the office and has not been put a way yet.

All of these items are going. It is not much but hey unneeded items tend to add up very quickly.

The last few things are kind of an action need before being dealt with. There are a couple things that belong in the car. The phone I need to plug in and reset. Once that is done I will take it in. The cord that is still in waping is for my personal computer. Not sure if that computer still works. If the computer does not work than I will get rid of the cords.

The baby swing is also being donated because it takes up an insane amount of space! Especially since Missy is to big for it.
