This is the fourth box of magazines I have thrown away in the past two weeks. I did mention I was a mag addict, didn't I?
I used to get something like 15 subscriptions, but I have been letting them all expire and now I would guess I have about 6.
My urge to purge was enhanced because we got a new hot water heater installed today. That meant that someone had to go down to my basement. There is nothing like embarrassment to bring on my desire to tidy things up a bit!
Today was also garbage day. I have been adding at least one extra box of junk to the garbage each week for the past month.
One week I tossed a couple bags of clothes. That's another item I buy all the time. While I am pretty much over the excessive magazine subscriptions, I am still a compulsive clothes buyer.
Sometimes I take stuff to the Salvation Army. But I really prefer just to toss them. Thrift stores are way too particular these days. They want items in season, in near perfect condition, and they don't even pick up anymore. It's way too much work for me to box them up, make sure they are in season, find time to haul them over when we both work every day, etc. Forget it. I usually just toss them out now.It's much easier to haul to the roadside and let my garbage service pick them up.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
