DH just needs to get out there and haul it away.
We called a junkyard and they actually came and got it. We got $500 for it.

We have a scrap metal place about 1/2 a mile down the road but they won't come haul anything. I can just load it up on the trailer and take it, he just needs to get off his butt and do it.

$500 is a great deal!!

Havent been able to do too much lately.. I dont have much left, but looking forward to this long weekend so I can hopefully get the rest of it done.. I still havent been able to do my garage sale, but I have sold a few more things on the Facebook site, so I think I will repost my items and also post them on craigslist and see if I get any bites..

It would be nice to get rid of the last of the things I have..

We donated our van to Purple Heart. They arranged pick up and paperwork and we got a $500.00 deduction. If it had auctioned for more we would have gotten a new slip. Many charities will do this but we chose Purple Heart for personal reasons.

Attacked our sock drawers this morning. Any ideas on what to do with a LOT of old socks? I suspect I will end up using some for cleaning rags and tossing the rest.

I sincerely don't mean to sound snarky -- I appreciate the intent of this reply. I just know if I showed up at my library with a bag of old socks, they would smile, say thank you, and carry them immediately to the dumpster. Lol!!

Still working on decluttering/organizing the craft/laundry room. What a mess! I hope to be done with it this weekend.

School starts on Tuesday, so I will start on staining the playset. Long overdue and no distractions to get in my way. DH will help me set up hose and extension cord for the power washer. I hope the rain stays away.

Once the outside stuff is done, then I'll continue with decluttering inside.

so today i finally went to the salvation army and donated four bags of clothes and one of shoes. they would not take the tv i had, they had too many in stock to take another one. also have books which i may try to sell to a used bookstore.

in the last few weeks i think i have thrown out like 5 garbage bags of junk laying around and it feels so good. tomorrow i am throwing out my old beat up wonky bookshelf and dresser.

in doing this i have reorganized my shoes and wardrobe so i can find things again (no need to go shopping this fall!) and found a home for all my scrapbooking stuff in the living room. i can now say i scrap book again instead of i collect scrap booking supplies.

any ideas on what to do with the tv? i hate to throw it out as it still works but this thing has been sitting around my apt for over a year in a box.

TV- you can try selling it on craigs list or yardsale since it works. If you dont want to deal with trying to sell it put it on the curb or your driveway with a sign that says FREE.


I just went through my piles of stuff to get rid of. I put all my Craigs list postings in one spot and organized it. Then a 2nd pile of stuff i need to take photos of and post on CL.

It's just way to hot to declutter-even with the air on-lol! I have a 3day weekend and hope to get some stuff done and sold.

Once it cools down I will attempt decluttering the garage

I cleaned up my room yesterday.

Goals for the weekend..
-shred papers
-post some more items on CL

Our Goodwill will take "rag" type donations because they sell it to recycling places.

I finally got the two bins of kids' papers sorted and reduced the stacks to a reasonable box for each. I mostly saved the writing papers and artwork. It was cute looking at them from over the years.

I was still motivated and went through the papers that need to be filed. I have to call a few drs on Tuesday because the bills are not correct and I think ins. didn't pay something correctly. *sigh* I hate dealing w/health insurance & always put it off.

Also cleared off DD"s computer desk this week. Now that she's in college, I'm trying to get her room in order and cleared out!

I did not make a trip last weekend so I plan to haul the donations over there this weekend definitely. There is a good size pile in the garage. I have some kids' clothes I may try to sell but the rest is just going.

I think I"m going to go through the kids' vanity right now since I didn't get anything done last weekend. DD is the queen of bath products so there are several half used bottles up there.

Have a great weekend everyone!

sadly i don't even think anyone would take it, i see old tvs at the curb all the time around here! my mother has agreed to take custody of it since she has nothing that is that small and may put it to use in a spare bedroom.

the other items i may have an issue getting rid of are stuffed animals. thrift stores won't take them for fear of bed bugs. since they are NWT i think i will hold onto them until december and donate them to a holiday toy drive.

isn't it ironic when you can't even give away perfectly useful stuff and the economy is tanking?

That seems to be an East Coast issue as my mom is in VA and was telling me the same things. I can donate those things to the goodwills here (they sell used stuffies and old tvs) and if I tried to give it away I'd have a dozen people after the stuff in just mins.

Anyone have any luck getting rid of old VHS movies? Wondering if a library would have use for them anymore.
