Scroogezilla Revisited

Week 1 of the the Buy Nothing Challenge has not been very challenging so I'm going to add another dimension; I'm also going to shed an item every day - this does not include garbage - and when we HAVE to buy something (eg mower parts) I will shed 2 things for every 1 that we buy. Stuff should also go to a new home if possible and not just be dumped on Lifeline. Now it's a challenge.

  1. Last week: 4 bags of books + 1 bag of kids clothes.

  3. Save money and get rid of all the junk in my house! And once I've finished with the house - I'll clean out the van! That miracle IS getting closer.

  4. Yesterday: Ditzy wall hanging & unused cosmetics. Sigh...probably cant give those away.
    Today: food grater, tongs, plastic wear, Sean's old diary folders (sans inserts), bottles & jars.

  5. Dont think you have enough to do by the sound of it, otherwise it is time for the men in white coats to come and see you. What books did you throw out?

  6. You're just scared I'll do the same to your place.

    I got rid of all the doubled up books. We had at least 30 books on counting to 10, abc and animals. I have 7 bookshelves and no more wall space - I think it may be time to slow down. I reckon I have more books than you do and this is AFTER my massive culls over the last 10 years.

  7. The men in the white lab coats brought me back. They didn't want me upsetting their inmates.
