Ooh, ooh! I'm in! Better late than never!

Yesterday I returned three items to Big 5. (3)

Sold a play kitchen and a dollhouse with furniture and people to a friend with a daughter younger than mine. (2 big plus couple dozen little)

Returned a tupperware to my sister, another to a friend, a gardening book and some papers to another friend. (5)

Last week my sister helped me go through the younger two kids' clothes. We packed up ELEVEN bags/boxes! Took it all to the clothing bank attached to our local food bank. And got a tax donation receipt! Win/win! (220)

Took four HUGE bags of plastic bags to the recycle box at the grocery store. (4)

And I went through papers around the house and recycled out a stack ten inches high! I have no idea how you count that, but it was a LOT of junk off my counter and table.

So 258 plus giant stack of papers/2008. Yeah!

3 bags worth of things, given to my mother, for my brother's children. Various articles of clothing, as well as books. I will estimate on the low side, and say 75 items

Today, one bag worth of stuff to my MILs house (she is like the Goodwill distributor for my family). Low estimate on number of items .. 25

2 infant dresses back to one of my girlfriends, who gave them to me in case I had girl babies.

Grand total for the past 2 days, 102 items
