As I mentioned in a previous post, I am on a kick to get rid of stuff. I am trying to scale back my belongings and keep only what I love, and generate more space in my house, drawers and even my car. I've been faffing around in every room in the house. Moving things from here to there, and sometimes back again. The Raz Man has a rule.....he'll only move things once so I have to decide exactly where I want it, if it is to heavy to me to move alone. Or I wait a few days when he's forgotten that we moved it already.
I eliminated a chair in the bedroom, and a large and crappy white bedside table in favor of this lovely old English Pine drop leaf table that a good friend gave me. She used to feed her family of 6 around this little table back in the UK. I am so pleased to have it and it works well as a night table.
If you look closely, you will see I've switched out the curtains. These white linen curtains were in the living room, and now the gray, block printed ones are in the living room, which is going to have a makeover in the next few weeks.
Yesterday I dumped 3 bags of rubbish (old cosmetics, shoes, clothes, old cleaning supplies, papers, broken items etc, and 4 enormous bags to the Salvation Army. If I had to add up the $ value of all those clothes I don't wear, shoes that don't fit right, cosmetics barely used and all sorts of cleaning supplies and unnecessary things, I think I would cry. It's not just enough to purge, I need to actually get a feel for the loss of $, not to mention the trash I've made, to really my this worthwhile.
Heading up to a cottage for the weekend with the Raz Man and Frenchie. Balto (dog) had his staples out of his leg today and is allowed to swim tomorrow. He's such a sweet boy, we just love him.
Adopt a dog this weekend.!
